As you may have heard, we have some new recordings to let you hear. Ok, so, here’s what’s what.
On the very day of the first date of the tour, Friday February 6th, round about midnight (and it’s always midnight somewhere), “Valentino”, the first ever song from the first ever album by A New International, will become available to stream and download on bandcamp, itunes, spotify and all the other usual suspects. There is more. On this very evening of Friday February 6th, at The Bongo Club in Edinburgh, the album, “Come to the Fabulon”, shall become available to the public for the very first time. “Come to the Fabulon” will be released on two different formats: a limited edition CD with lyric booklet, or a download code with a limited edition storybook featuring stories, photographs and lyrics to accompany the album. These will both be available to buy at all of the upcoming shows (see live listings for details). If you cannot make this first round of shows you can buy “Come to the Fabulon” by mail order through Bandcamp (details to follow). We shall begin shipping orders by mail on the morning of the first day of the tour. “Come to the Fabulon” will be officially released in early March when it too shall become all too available, and through the usual suspects.
February, then, shall be our month; a time when the songs can be heard by family, friends old and new, fellow travellers, co-conspirators, well-wishers and everyone who has supported the band, all welcome, tell your friends. I hope you find a joy in listening to the songs like that which we found in making them. For a long time now these songs have been our secret. We’d like to share our secret with you. Come to the Fabulon.
