Alexander Armstrong's new album, Upon a Different Shore, comes out on Friday 28th October. His first disc, A Year of Songs, went straight to the top of the classical charts, and even reached No.6 in the general album charts.
The new collection is remarkably eclectic, with songs ranging from the Stranglers to Pink Floyd to Vaughan Williams. It's conceived of as a whole, 'a modern symphony';
On paper it looks like madness, but in reality I’m thrilled with the results.We had the idea to create beautiful soundscapes with textures of orchestra, acoustic instruments, voice and choirs to take the listener to somewhere quite magical… a different shore!The album is available to pre-order on Amazon and iTunes, and from all usual sources.
