Scotland’s Idlewild will play 2 nights in Glasgow to celebrate 15 years since the release of ‘The Remote Part’
This album was the soundtrack to my student days (has it really been 15 years?). It’s one of these albums you press play on track 1 and then don’t touch it again. Every track is a classic.
Released in July 2002, Idlewild’s third album is their most successful album, peaking at number 3 in the charts and going gold. It included their massive hit ‘American English’ which, when played live at T In The Park, is still one of my festival highlights. Other favourites include; ‘You Held The World In Your Arms’, ‘A Modern Way Of Letting Go’, ‘Live In A Hiding Place’…
I could go on but just stick the album on —> http://spoti.fi/2hMaUIM
They will play 2 nights at Glasgow’s O2 ABC on 19th & 20th December where ‘The Remote Part’ will be played in full along with other favourites. Tickets go on general sale on Friday but you can get access to a pre-sale by signing up to the bands mailing list—> http://smarturl.it/IWsignup
After these gigs Idlewild will continue to work on their 8th album, the follow-up to 2015’s ‘Everything Ever Written’
