CHARTS JULY UK GIGS FOR:
‘A SAILOR’S GUIDE TO EARTH’ TOUR
THE CRITICALLY ACCLAIMED, BILLBOARD #1 ALBUM – OUT NOW
Riding the waves of critical acclaim that surrounded recent album ‘A Sailor’s Guide to Earth’ - STURGILL SIMPSON - charts a UK tour in July that will feature some of his biggest shows to date.
Lining up appearances throughout July, Simpson will be visiting some of Manchester, Gateshead, Glasgow and London’s more sizeable halls this summer, alongside main stage slots at major European Festivals including Latitude and Roskilde.
Sturgill Simpson’s highly anticipated new album ‘A Sailor’s Guide To Earth’ was released on April 15 on Atlantic Records earning the singer-songwriter a coveted No.1 spot in the US Billboard charts.
‘A Sailor’s Guide To Earth’ is Simpson’s third full-length album and follows his break-through, Grammy-nominated 2014 release, Metamodern Sounds In Country Music.
Recorded primarily at Nashville’s The Butcher Shoppe, Simpson was joined in the studio by Grammy Award-winning engineer David Ferguson (Johnny Cash, John Prine, “Cowboy” Jack Clement) and assistant engineer Sean Sullivan. Along with members of his touring band, the album features Dave Roe on bass, Dan Dugmore on steel guitar, Dougie Wilkinson on bagpipes, Garo Yellin and Arthur Cook on cello, Jonathan Dinklage and Whitney LaGrange on violin and special guests The Dap-Kings.
Produced by Simpson, A Sailor’s Guide To Earth was written—beginning to end—as a letter to his first child who arrived during the summer of 2014 and features eight original songs as well as a rendition of Nirvana’s “In Bloom”.
