The Old Magic

I’m working on a new Sieben album, which will be named The Old Magic. My plan is to release three digital EPs, then the physical CD, sometime soon after. The Old Magic will have all six ten-minute tracks from Lietuva, Norse, and Britannica EPs, on one CD, and all the re-worked tracks on the other CD. So, hang on for the CD, if you prefer it physical! 🙂 Not sure they’ll be a vinyl, though someone may step in and offer to do it. Going to need three sides of vinyl simply to get the new tracks on, though…

Got gigs in Sheffield (UK), Stockholm (SE), Munich and Lobau (DE) coming up in the next few weeks, and really looking forward to those. I’ll be bringing along original artwork prints from The Old Magic, and woodcuts with digital download codes for Lietuva EP, too. Bring your wallets!

I recently did a live session for the marvellous Phantom Circuit radio show. I recorded two songs, live in the studio (complete with a little message for Phantom Circuit on their 7th anniversary), both from The Old Magic album: Black Moon Rise Again, which some of you will have heard in its studio form, of course; and the title track from the next album, The Old Magic. I’ve got a bit of a sore throat whilst recording it live, so there’s the odd snuffle and failure to hit the right note, occasionally – forgive me for that 😉 Listen here. The show is full of great stuff, each month. I regularly listen eagerly.
