Baxter Dury will deliver an exclusive session from his London home as part of the Royal Albert Home series.
In these strange times, closing the Hall’s doors is the best way to look after the world, but we are now opening a (virtual) window for you to experience some of the most talented artists around.
Last month saw Dury release The Night Chancers, the follow-up to 2017’s widely acclaimed album Prince Of Tears.
While Prince Of Tears was a cinematic confessional trying to stay afloat on the seas of relationship failure, The Night Chancers finds the songwriter adopting a more directorial approach to his tracks, sketching out people and situations as he initially dives deep into the darkness before reaching an emotional dawn.
Failed fashionistas, Instagram voyeurs, jilted Romeos reeking insecurity, the willingly self-deluded, the comically unaware – these creatures and constructs are the inspirations for this ten-song gaze into the black hours and the characters and behaviours that swirl around within them.
