The Glare - McAlmont & Nyman

Check out this fantastic new recording by the Michael Nyman Band with singer/songwriter David McAlmont.

David wrote some incredible lyrics and melodies to go over the top of some of Michael's existing music, and the results are generating a real buzz - there's apparently talk of a Mercury Prize nomination, and the reviews are all excellent.

We're off to Spain in February for a couple of live shows of this project too, and no doubt there will be more dates as the year progresses. -RB
