King Creosote & Jon Hopkins London Live Date Announced May 2011
King Creosote & Jon Hopkins have just announced a London show at the Union Chapel on 25th May. This unique date in London will be a rare chance to see King Creosote and Hopkins performing songs from their first collaborative album, Diamond Mine, which is released on March 28th.
King Creosote & Jon Hopkins will perform further shows around the UK, details to be announced at a later date.
Intended to be heard as a single experience, Diamond Mine produces a near classical suite of emotion ranging from cracked despair to patched-up euphoria. Described by King Creosote as a 'soundtrack to a romanticised version of a life lived in a Scottish coastal village', the record weaves in slices of Fife life - bike wheels, spring tides, tea cups and café chatter to produce a beautiful, unique and timeless album. Featuring lyrics and vocals from King Creosote sung over musical backdrops arranged and recorded by Jon Hopkins, Diamond Mine is a genuine labour of love, recorded over a number of years without the pressure of deadlines, whenever Jon and KC could get together.
