Next month Andy Burrows will be heading out on tour, with a stop at Glasgow King Tuts on Wednesday, February 13.
The tour will follow the release of the album Reasons To Stay Alive – a deeply personal collaboration between the musician and the number one best-selling author, Matt Haig, out via Fiction Records, today (February 1).
The duo have spent the past year passing ideas back and forth to create a stunning collection of songs loosely inspired by Haig’s much loved books, including Reasons to Stay Alive and How to Stop Time, with words by Haig and music by Burrows.
Since first coming to fame as drummer and songwriter for Razorlight, Andy has become one of the most in demand people in music and has so far clocked up an incredible 150 million plus Spotify plays of songs he has composed.
Since calling it a day with Razorlight and going it alone, he has made four successful solo records plus a collaborative album, Funny Looking Angels with Editors frontman, Tom Smith.
He also co-wrote the BAFTA nominated soundtrack to the 2012 Channel 4 film The Snowman and the Snowdog and co-produced the soundtrack to the 2016 movie David Brent: Life on the Road in which he also starred as the drummer in Brent’s band Foregone Conclusion.
He has additionally contributed to records by We Are Scientists, Jamie Lawson and Tom Odell (co-writing tracks on all three of his albums so far).
Andy will be heading out on tour this month performing songs from Reasons To Stay Alive as well as his own solo material.
Andy plays Glasgow’s King Tuts on Wednesday, February 13, with support from Ali Robertson and Ross John Stewart.
