Kitchen Disco Records are excited to announce the release of The Story of Ian Prowse, a career-spanning retrospective of Ian Prowse’s music on 28 February 28 2020.
The album includes much-loved tunes from Ian’s first indie cult band, Pele; classic songwriting from Amsterdam; and favourites from the three Ian Prowse solo LPs released this decade.
The Story of Ian Prowse also includes duets with Christy Moore and Elvis Costello, five songs playlisted by BBC Radio 1 and Radio 2, a #1 hit in South Africa and a brand new track called Only The Love. This release will underline Ian’s reputation as probably the UK’s most underrated songwriter.
Often described as the ‘Scouse Springsteen’ for his full on live performances, Prowsey is supporting The Story of Ian Prowse with an extensive acoustic tour across Britain, starting immediately after supporting Elvis Costello and the Imposters up and down the country in March.
This live acoustic show will not only include Prowsey’s most well known and loved tunes but it will also share some of the wild and wonderful stories behind them. What really happened to end Pele? What were the terrible downs and unexpected ups that occurred to get Amsterdam going? What’s it been like to meet & play with your heroes?
All will be revealed on The Story of Ian Prowse tour 2020!
We are very excited to officially announce the brand new album and if you pre-order you will be assisting greatly in getting the record out there, as you know making and releasing albums is an expensive business.
The record is called Here I Lie and took 18 months to make and used 17 magnificent musicians. The 11-song LP rivals anything in Ian’s 27-year career.
As the first album of brand new material since 2014’s ‘Who Loves Ya Baby’ nears completion we are very excited to announce the full Amsterdam band will play just six special shows to launch what is being called by Ian and producer Tony Kiley ‘our masterpiece’.
No other shows will be added on this tour, more details about the much-anticipated new LP will be released very soon.
The tour will feature lots of Pele and Amsterdam favourites as well as cuts from the new album.
