Mary has featured a few times before on Beat Surrender and the vinyl release of her album Dream Life is in my personal collection, the good news for music lovers on the other side of the pond is the album has now had a formal release in the US on Highline Records.

For my fellow European inhabitants, there is a festival in France I am playing next week (American Journeys in Cambrai, France) and I will be back in the UK in July. It’s not official yet but Scandinavia is in the pipes for November.

You might wonder if there will be a follow-up records, the answer is Yes. I will start the first demos this summer for a release next year.
I just want to make sure it is everything you deserve. I am working really hard on it and I am really excited about it!
For the curious ears, I will play some of the songs live from Paris in streaming this Sunday for a “Concert Window”. It’s a streaming show and my team and I are setting the best sounding experience for it.
It’s open for everyone to hear.
It is set for this Sunday at the following times:
9PM – Europe Time
8PM – London Time
3PM – Eastern Time
2PM – Central Time
Concert Window : https://www.concertwindow.com/95020-hannah-aldridge
Also, we have set Tip Rewards that you might want to look into (ex: signed posters, handwritten lyrics, skype sessions, etc…)

Lovely animated video featuring the title track from Paper Aeroplanes latest album – reviewed last month on Beat Surrender.
The legendary Chip Taylor, the singer-songwriter responsible for penning both ‘Wild Thing’ and ‘Angel Of The Morning,’ announces a number of UK dates in support of his Little Prayers Trilogy triple album released in January on Train Wreck records. The album, considered by many to be the seventy-five year old’s masterpiece, has been hailed a ‘crowing glory to a storied career” by MOJO, and described as “the americana equivalent of Leonard Cohen” by THE INDEPENDENT. UNCUT Magazine gave the album 9/10 and CMP made it their album of the month with a 5***** review. Chip will be performing as a duet with longtime friend and accompanist John Platania who is best known for his work with Van Morrison on four albums including Moondance.
