Rich Robinson’s The Magpie Salute announce debut album
Rich Robinson’s project with former Black Crowes members Marc Ford and Sven Pipien will launch their debut album in June
The Magpie Salute have announced that their self-titled debut album will be released later this year.
The band features ex Black Crowes men Rich Robinson, Marc Ford and Sven Pipien – while late keyboardist Eddie Harsch also appears on the album – his last recorded work. He died in Toronto in November last year at the age of 59.
The record will feature “fresh takes of The Black Crowes’ What Is Home and Wiser Time and new interpretations of Comin’ Home by Delaney and Bonnie, Bobby Hutcherson’s Goin’ Down South, War’s War Drums, Pink Floyd’s Fearless, The Faces’ Glad And Sorry, Bob Marley’s Time Will Tell and the traditional song Ain’t No More Cane.”
The band’s lineup is completed by drummer Joe Magistro and guitarist Nico Bereciartua, while vocalists including John Hogg, Charity White, Adrien Reju and Katrine Ottosen also appear on the album, which will be released on June 9 via Eagle Rock Entertainment.
The Magpie Salute have also lined up four consecutive nights at London’s Under The Bridge. They’ll play on April 12, 13, 14 and 15 in support of the record.
Further album details will be revealed in due course, while videos for Comin’ Home and War Drums can be watched below.
Following their London dates, The Magpie Salute will play shows across Europe and the US.
