Hot off the back of his new solo album, Lower Reaches, Justin Currie, will be performing in Southampton this month. The former frontman of Scottish rockers Del Amitri recorded his new album in Austin, Texas, and released it on his own label Endless Shipwreck In August.
Lower Reaches features a more introspective and mournful vocal sound than the warm rock stylings which led Del Amitri to sell more than a million albums, including four top-10 hits in the UK. The acerbic Scottish singer’s new album touches on elements of country, rock and pop while maintaining Currie’s trademark poignant lyrics.
Fans of Del Amitri will also be excited to know that the band are returning in 2014, after a 10-year sabbatical, to perform the A to Z of Us tour, including all their greatest hits. Tickets for the new tour are on sale now, for more information go to delamitri.org.
Justin Currie plays The Brook, Southampton, on Tuesday (September 17). Tickets are £20 from (023) 8055 5366, visit the-brook.com or £22 on the door at 8pm.
