RUNRIG 'THE STORY' CD + 32 Page Booklet (2016)
Entitled 'The Story' and packaged in book format with 32 page booklet, the 11 track album brings the curtain down on a remarkable and unique recording career. Having celebrated their 40th anniversary two years ago, the band took the decision to embark on one final creative journey into the studio. The result, one year later, is an album of emotional resonance and reflection, placing at the heart a narrative that is very much that of the band itself. The album was produced by the band's youngest member, keyboard player Brian Hurren. From the outset, Brian expressed a strong desire to drive the production agenda on this project, bringing to the table his exceptional musical and audio skills, along with a unique perspective on the historic sound of the band. He has produced an outstanding album of rare beauty, both celebratory and nostalgic, with a sound palette that ranges from the contemporary, to some of the sonic milestones that are so ubiquitous to Runrig's past. This is a hugely significant album for the band. It's an album that wears its heart firmly on its sleeve...
