LIVE AT DE ROMA
The Waterboys will be in concert at De Roma in Antwerp on November the 16th. The concert coincides with their brand-new studio double album ‘Out Of All This Blue’ which was released on September 8 2017. It was their first record for BMG Records, with whom they recently signed.
Produced by Mike Scott and recorded in Dublin and Tokyo , ‘Out Of All This Blue’ is available on Double CD and Double Vinyl, plus Deluxe Triple CD (including Bonus Tracks) and Deluxe Triple Vinyl (including Bonus Tracks) and Digital.
‘Out Of All This Blue’ is The Waterboys most exploratory recording yet, comprising 23 songs with Mike Scott's trademark sharp lyrics set to pop music with echoes of classic R&B, country, soul and funk and underpinned by modern hiphop production values and rhythms. String & brass sections were arranged and conducted by Trey Pollard of The Spacebomb Collective.
Mike Scott says of the record: "Out Of All This Blue is 2/3 love and romance, 1/3 stories and observations. I knew from the beginning I wanted to make a double album, and lucky for me - and I hope the listener - the songs just kept coming, and in pop colours."
