Jarrod Dickenson will release his album Ready the Horses on 29th September 2017 it has been announced.
The album will be preceded by the new single California, which is available to download and stream now. The Texas-born singer-songwriter was due to release Ready the Horses back in March but after catching the attention of, and signing to, Decca Records the release was pushed back.
Jarrod said, “I think we’ve found a great home for the new album with Decca Records. It’s an honour to be working with such an iconic label, and to be a part of their rich musical history. I’m very proud of ‘Ready The Horses’, and I am excited to send it out into the world.”
The album was recorded with Dickenson’s band live onto 2” tape.
Talking about the record Dickenson said, “I’ve found that getting a group of musicians all together in the same room, and playing the songs live allows you to capture the energy and feel of a live performance, because it’s just that; a performance. You feed off each other, and create a much more honest and meaningful thing in my opinion. Recording to tape produces that warm sound we all love, but also affords you less room for error. I think it forces you to give each take your all.”
