Robin Trower returns with a stunningly smouldering new album “Joyful Sky” featuring powerhouse vocalist, Sari Schorr. To celebrate they have revealed the video for “The Distance,” which you can watch below.Always receptive to singers who can elevate his emotive guitar touch, the 78-year-old heard a quality in the smoky power of Sari Schorr that made him want to tear down and rebuild his songcraft around her.
“I’ve worked with some great vocalists over the years but Sari is dynamite, just an absolute knockout,” reflects Trower. “This album really pushed me, made me write in different keys and arrange songs for her voice. I went more down the R&B route this time, because I knew she’d be great with that flavour. But the blues still underpins everything I do – and there’s definitely elements from my ’70s stuff in this new album.”
The pair are also giving fans the chance to have exclusive access to Robin’s return to stage following a four-year hiatus, alongside the amazing Sari Schorr on Saturday 4th November. Captured in high quality video, with emphatic audio clarity, Trower will be playing live tracks from his new album “Joyful Sky,” plus exclusive new versions of his classics including “Day of the Eagle” and “Bridge of Sighs.”
