Following the successful release of his latest LP Tooth And Nail, Billy Bragg has announced a super-special, super-intimate, one-off performance to take place in Sydney where the new tracks from the album will be showcased in all their glory.
Taking to The Factory Theatre on Friday, 13th September, Bragg will unveil the final results of what he has described as a period of introspection. Tooth And Nail is Bragg’s first album in 5 years, finally clocking some studio hours after in between his always in-demand live shows.
Off the record, Bragg began to meet in a cellar studio with his pick of the musical litter, enlisting musicians such as Greg Leisz (Bon Iver), Patrick Warren (Lana Del Rey), Jay Bellerose (Regina Spektor) and David Piltch (Ramblin’ Jack Eliott). The troupe all feature on the record which the legendary muso has labeled “the follow-up to [2008’s Wilco collboration] Mermaid Avenue that I never made”.
Tooth And Nail hit shelves back in March. Tickets to the showcase are on sale next Monday, 26th August at 11am.
