Al Tuck Announces New LP, Books Canadian Tour Dates
According to a press release, this latest LP "might just be his best to date." Apparently, "Striking lyrical imagery abounds in every song, snaking its way around Tuck's idiosyncratic, liquid guitar lines."
The album reportedly features only sparse accompaniment, and this places the focus on Tuck's vocals and guitar. Stylistic descriptions include "Celtic-flavoured grooves," "impossibly sweet country singalongs" and "barnyard acoustic blues." At least one song was produced by Joel Plaskett ("Slapping the Make On You").
To celebrate the album's release, Tuck will be playing some November tour dates in Canada's eastern half. Scroll past the tracklist to check out the schedule.
