Release Date: Record Store Day UK, 21 April 2018. Listen Now to a New Track at trevorburton.net
Birmingham, England -- (ReleaseWire) -- 03/09/2018 -- Trevor Burton - co-founder of iconic British psychedelic sixties band The Move - announces his first solo album, Long Play.
Long Play features 11 tracks, including 2 songs penned by Trevor as well as interpretations of 9 modern classics, and classics yet to be discovered: tunes from contemporary songwriters like Vic Chesnutt, John Vanderslice, Jeff Mangum of Neutral Milk Hotel, John Darnielle of the Mountain Goats and more. The album is carefully curated and arranged by Trevor to reflect the world he sees today. Stripped down to its bare essence, Long Play is a painfully honest album that transcends generational divides.
Each performance is acoustic, raw and naked, a stark departure from Trevor's legendary electric blues and heavy rock style, but as natural and honest as a set of performances can be. Each song is unmistakably Trevor Burton, both classic and new at once. Culminating a long career and all the lessons learned from a lifetime of rock and roll – from the Move to Balls, Pink Fairies and the Steve Gibbons Band - Long Play is an album about today.
Long Play will be released as part of Record Store Day UK, on 21 April 2018. Trevor will also make a live in-store appearance on Record Store Day UK at The Diskery in his home town of Birmingham England.
Trevor also announces his new website, www.trevorburton.net, which has more information about the record and stream a performance of one of the album's tracks "Be Positive," a song from the cult classic Southern California band Refrigerator, which Trevor renders his own.
Details: Long Play will be released in both the UK and US on 21 April as a limited-edition of 1,000 blood-red 180-gram vinyl records, and a small run of cassettes. Each vinyl album comes with a limited-edition bonus CD, including three songs Trevor plays with a full electric band; fiery renditions of tunes from Phish, The White Stripes and The Weakerthans, reminding us Trevor is still, in every way, a Brummie rocker.
