Trower album to launch on 70th birthday

Robin Trower will release his next album, Something’s About To Change, on March 9 next year – his 70th birthday.

A 17-date UK tour will support the launch, with Joanne Shaw Taylor in support.

Trower says of the follow-up to 2013’s acclaimed Roots And Branches: “I can’t remember ever being so happy with a finished album before.”

He’s recorded bass parts for the first time, reflecting: “As a songwriter and a performer, you use everything at your disposal to put into songs. There’s some sort of feeling of emotional release when you play a note that rings out right.”

The 12-track title will be released via Manhaton/V12 Records.

Not only is one-time online news editor Martin an established rock journalist and drummer, but he’s also penned several books on music history, including SAHB Story: The Tale of the Sensational Alex Harvey Band (opens in new tab), a band he once managed, and the best-selling Apollo Memories (opens in new tab) about the history of the legendary and infamous Glasgow Apollo. Martin has written for Classic Rock and Prog and at one time had written more articles for Louder than anyone else (we think he's second now). He’s appeared on TV and when not delving intro all things music, can be found travelling along the UK’s vast canal network.
