PostSubject: ROB COTTINGHAM ANNOUNCES CAPTAIN BLUE RELEASE DATE PLUS FIRST SOLO ALBUM NEWS   Fri Dec 07, 2012 3:35 am

PRESS RELEASE - FRIDAY 7th DECEMBER 2012

ROB COTTINGHAM, SINGER SONG-WRITER, KEYBOARDIST AND FOUNDING MEMBER OF THE ROCK BAND TOUCHSTONE, ANNOUNCES RELEASE DATE FOR "CAPTAIN BLUE" SOLO ALBUM AND DIGITAL RELEASE OF FIRST SOLO ALBUM.

Rob Cottingham announces the release date for his second solo album, Captain Blue, as 14th January 2013, and the digital release of his first solo album, Behind The Orchard Tree.

In a statement, Rob said: "I am delighted to at last announce the official release date of Captain Blue which will be 14/1/13. That will be almost a year to the day that I met Gary O'Toole in London to discuss his involvement in the project, and to say that the year since then has been a rollercoaster in so many different ways would be an understatement. In a bizarre turn of events, my real life was following the Captain Blue 'path' - a case of 'life imitating art'!

To celebrate this announcement, and due to a multitude of requests to hear "the album that started it all" from ten years ago, after the last copy was sold last year, I am also pleased to announce that my first solo album, Behind The Orchard Tree, which was released in March 2002, will soon be available for download on all popular digital sites, such as iTunes, Spotify, YouTube, amazon.com, and so on. The tracks are all set up and good to go, and once I get a clear timeline from my distributor for digital release, I will let everyone know.

Please note, this first album was recorded in only seven days on an analogue desk, so do check it out before you buy. For those that are interested, the album was recorded at Linford Manor Studios in a Milton Keynes through the same desk used by Pink Floyd in Abbey Road, through which they recorded Wish You Were Here. Linford Manor had to squeeze me in at the time between Skunk Anansie and Jamiroquai.
See if you can spot the track where the band name, Touchstone, came from. You might also be interested to know that the man behind the Captain Blue illustrative artwork, Andrew Wildman, is also the drummer on this first album, and he is still banging things around today in a great folk rock band called Cooper Black.

I would like to especially thank those wonderful people who have pre-ordered the Captain Blue album since July. The albums are now on their way. Your faith, support - and patience! - have been absolutely fantastic.

For those of you who missed the pre-order deadline, you have one last chance to guarantee to get this album before Christmas! You will be able to exclusively buy this album in advance of the release date at the Touchstone "End Of The World" Christmas gig at The Borderline on 21st December 2012. Stock will be limited so do make sure you get along to the gig to enjoy a cracker of a Christmas show and gnab your copy of Captain Blue, at the same time. Touchstone are also selling their t-shirts at a knock down price so grab some of those, too. Once they're gone, they're gone!

Finally, apart from having great fun together on producing Captain Blue, I am also really proud of what Heather, Adam, Gary, Simon and I achieved - with the fabulous support of Steve Hackett and Shane Rimmer, as well as, of course, Sinewave Studios - and I sincerely hope everyone who buys the album feels more than adequately rewarded by what has been described to me as a seventy minute album full of many different colours."
