Roddy Frame (Aztec Camera) To Release 1st Solo Album in 8 Years, SEVEN DAILS
"This, for any lover of the cracked ballad, the pop hit, the smart word or the perfectly chosen chord, is essential." - The Line of Best Fit
It is with great delight and pride that AED Records announce that Roddy Frame has chosen us for the home of his first recordings in eight years. His new album, Seven Dials, will be released in the US on August 19th, 2014. Courtesy of Wondering Sound, listen now to the wistful traveler's song "Postcard" HERE.
The album was recorded at West Heath Studios, the home of AED Records, a label formed by Edwyn Collins in 2011. The relationship between Roddy and Edwyn reaches back to the records their respective bands, Aztec Camera an Orange Juice, released on the legendary Postcard Records of Scotland label in the early 1980's.
Seven Dials was recorded in sessions that spanned across 2013. Co-produced by Roddy himself and Sebastian Lewsley, the ten tracks feature drummer Adrian Meehan and keyboards by long-time Roddy cohort Mark Edwards, with all other instruments played by Roddy himself.
Following three prestigious sell-out shows in the UK to celebrate the thirty-year anniversary of his first album with Aztec Camera, Roddy will internationally tour later this year.
