If you haven’t seen the beautiful ‘From Scotland with Love’ then drop everything and buy or download it now. It’s a quite stunning archive of Scottish film, a journey into the past, the film explores universal themes of love, loss, resistance, migration, work and play. For music fans it is also accompanied by the critically acclaimed King Creosote LP of the same name. From that LP the artist is now releasing the opening track ‘Something To Believe In’ on the 20th October 2014, on Domino Records.
‘From Scotland With Love’ was created in collaboration with director Virginia Heath and Producer Grant Keir as an audio-accompaniment to a poetic documentary film of the same name, which was commissioned for the Commonwealth Games. Featuring archive footage but no narration or interview, the film is driven as much by the music as it is the images.
And there is more good news. As well as the already publicised tour dates (see below) Kenny Anderson (aka King Creosote) has today announce a new show at London’s Union Chapel on the 3rd February 2015, and will be accompanied by a six-piece band.
