Rhys Marsh: News Re: New Solo Album

Excellent news from Rhys:


hello, i have a little surprise for you…

i’m going to release a brand-new studio album on the 1st of December!

‘The Black Sun Shining’ is a 42-minute song-cycle, in seven movements, intended to be listened to as one piece of music.

i wasn’t planning to make another album just yet (don’t i always say that?), but i had a bit of time in-between projects in the studio and i came up with a few ideas, so i set up some microphones and spent seven days running back and forth, recording as i was writing. it was a lot of fun, and i quite often began with the rhythms, rather than chords, which is something i haven’t tried before.

as the album writing and recording process was different, i’m also releasing it a bit differently: it will only be available on CD from Burning Shed (click here or below), and the first 100 orders will come with a signed postcard.




the first single (although it’s not really a single, as it’s part of the song-cycle) is called ‘Wondering Stars’, and will get some airplay over the coming week or so. you’ll be able to hear it here:

  • Saturday 21st: The Phil Meek Show on Radio Caroline (UK — 21:00, GMT)
  • Sunday 22nd: ProgLogg on NRK P13 (Norway — 20:00, GMT)
  • Sunday 29th: Xymphonia on AAFM (The Netherlands — 19:00, GMT)

all stations also broadcast online, so you can tune in from anywhere in the world.



if you haven’t yet picked up a copy of my previous solo album, ‘Sentiment’, Burning Shed will be featuring it (along with a few other Autumnsongs Records titles) in their Winter Sale, which begins on the 26th November and runs for one week. be sure to grab some bargains!


if you read this far, you just put a virtual smile on my face. thank you.
