Soord launches acoustic take on Magnolia

The Pineapple Thief’s Bruce Soord has launch a video to accompany his solo acoustic version of Magnolia.

It’s the title track from the band’s 10th album, which was released in September via Kscope, featuring Soord alongside bassist Jon Sykes, keyboardist Steve Kitch and new drummer Dan Osborne.

The mainman says: “All the songs on Magnolia began their life this way, on acoustic guitar and vocal. So it was really nice to go back and play this song in the form as it was when it was born.”

TPT begin a European tour on November 18, culminating with four UK shows in December.

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, a band he once managed, and the best-selling Apollo Memories 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.
