Short Stories Vol. 1

Ricky Ross is very happy to announce a new solo album and tour, Short Stories Vol. 1. The album will be released on CD and vinyl on September 15th 2017, followed by tour dates in November and December.

We are putting together a fan pre-sale with ticket and album bundles that starts on Thursday 18th May at 9.00am and will be live for 24 hours before the general sale on Friday. Link will be live here on Thursday morning.

This is the first time we have made tickets for the tour available to buy alongside the album and doing so unlocks an exclusive, limited edition, numbered 7″ vinyl containing a new recording of ‘Raintown’ recorded with a beautiful backing choir, along with a brand new track ‘A Soldiers Song’. Both recordings are only available on the limited 7″ vinyl edition.

The album was recorded over two days at Chameleon Studios in Hamburg and had its sumptuous strings and choir added back in Glasgow. It is comprised of brand new songs, some well-known Deacon Blue tracks, and new recording of tracks that have been very hard to find.
