Baxter Dury will deliver an exclusive session from his London home as part of the Royal Albert Home series.
“Last month saw Dury release The Night Chancers, the follow-up to 2017’s widely acclaimed album Prince Of Tears.
While Prince Of Tears was a cinematic confessional trying to stay afloat on the seas of relationship failure, The Night Chancers finds the songwriter adopting a more directorial approach to his tracks, sketching out people and situations as he initially dives deep into the darkness before reaching an emotional dawn.
Failed fashionistas, Instagram voyeurs, jilted Romeos reeking insecurity, the willingly self-deluded, the comically unaware – these creatures and constructs are the inspirations for this ten-song gaze into the black hours and the characters and behaviours that swirl around within them.”
The Royal Albert Home shows will all be streamable free of charge, but with the option to make a donation. The Royal Albert Hall will turn 150 years old in 2021 and are closed for the first time since World War Two due to the coronavirus pandemic, meaning that they have no regular income to support their staff or our Grade I-listed building.
