Dyble Longdon, the collaboration between Big Big Train singer David Longdon and the late former Fairport Convention/Trader Horne singer Judy Dyble have premiered the video for their debut single Astrologers with Prog.
The song is taken from the upcoming Dyble Longdon album Between A Breath And A Breath which will be released through English Electric on September 25. Astrologers will be released as a download and on all streaming services from September 11.
"A horoscope tells a lonely woman that today, the planets will ensure that she will meet the person of her dreams," is how Dyble explained the song. "The trouble is, it seems to tell her the same thing day after day. Ever the optimist, she looks forward to the thrilling event, only to be disappointed time after time. This song is a heartfelt cry of 'enough!'."
“I first heard David sing with Big Big Train at King’s Place in London 2015 and immediately decided that I really wanted to sing with him someday," Dyble previously told Prog. "And here we are with a collaborative album, which I think is wonderful!”
“Judy asked if I would like to work with her," adds Longdon. "She sent me some great lyrics which inspired the music and over the years we’ve become good friends. Judy duetted with me on The Ivy Gate, which appears on Big Big Train’s Grimspound album. The Dyble Longdon album is a natural development on from this piece.”
Between A Breath And A Breath was recorded at Real World Studios in Wiltshire and Playpen Studios in Bristol. The album has been produced by Longdon and mixed by Patrick Phillips (Elbow, Kate Bush and Sir Paul McCartney). The artwork for the album is by Big Big Train artist Sarah Ewing.
