Packaged in a Digi-Pak, this finds BBT creatively branching out and embracing influences from multiple other genres whilst retaining its Progressive roots!

Featuring writing contributions from several of its members, ‘Welcome To The Planet’ sees BIG BIG TRAIN retain its Progressive roots, but also creatively branching out and embracing influences from multiple other genres.

Coming just six months after the band’s critically acclaimed top 40 release: ‘Common Ground’, founder Gregory Spawton explains the short time between albums …
“The experience of the pandemic has shown us that we need to make the best use of our time on Earth. With that in mind and with new band members on board giving us a fresh head of steam, we decided on a speedy return to the studio to write and record ‘Welcome To The Planet’.”

The album’s opener ‘Made From Sunshine’, co-written by guitarist Dave Foster and singer David Longdon, has guitar lines redolent of Johnny Marr and vocal harmonies reminiscent of the Finn Brothers/CROWDED HOUSE, with violinist Clare Lindley sharing lead vocals with Longdon.
Elsewhere on the album, keyboard player Carly Bryant gets her first BIG BIG TRAIN writing credit and lead vocal on the captivating title track. The two recent singles: ‘The Connection Plan’ and ‘Lanterna’ are included along with a winter themed song: ‘Proper Jack Froster’, a bittersweet tale of childhood.
The album is completed by the delicate acoustic ‘Capitoline Venus’ the beautiful ‘Oak And Stone’ and a pair of dazzling instrumentals: ‘A Room With No Ceiling’ and ‘Bats In The Belfry’, written by guitarist / keyboardist Rikard Sjöblom and drummer Nick D’Virgilio respectively.

‘Welcome To The Planet’ is released on 28th January 2022.

‘Welcome To The Planet’ is also available as a 180gm Vinyl LP – Stock # 2205652
