NEW STRAWBS ALBUM RELEASED - 26 FEB 2021 NEW
Facebook users are beginning to report they've received their orders - not in East London or Middlesbrough - grrr!
Esoteric Records press release
"Settlement is the latest album produced by Strawbs, more than 50 years on from the band's first major label release. The album comes at a time of political and social upheaval, which the lyrics and melodies of the songs reflect. Undeterred by the fact that "business as usual" was not possible because of the global COVID-19 pandemic - working remote from one another, from their own home studios - Settlement is a remarkable achievement.
There are preview reviews from me and long time support Jon Connolly on the Settlement reviews page. Please don't just send your reviews and comments to Facebook - send them to me at:
Added selection of online reviews.
Two singles released onto YouTube:
In addition, Strawbs have streamed the title track of their upcoming album Settlement exclusively with Prog magazine.
To promote Settlement the Strawbs have been releasing a series of videos onto Facebook and other social media. These are collected on Strawbsweb on the Settlement videos page, for ease of reference. Check them out - more to come .....
