Red Rum Club have announced the release of The Hollow Sessions, an album of acoustic tracks which strips back and chills out the band’s renowned upbeat sound. With each track drawn from their first two albums, The Hollow Of Humdrum and Matador, the band’s return to the studio to go unplugged closes their first chapter.
The first release from the album is out now – ‘Eleanor’. Having appeared on the BBC Radio 2 Playlist in July of last year, the band’s popular track ‘Eleanor‘ became one of the most sought after tracks in the UK in 2020. Originally intended to be the hands-high anthem for last year’s festival fields, the song instead poured into the public’s homes and hearts with its message of love when times get hard.
The Hollow Of Humdrum, originally released last October, found the band coming off the back of a long year of UK and European touring and heading straight to the studio to create, by their own admission, a more mature and varied follow up to their 2019 debut, Matador.
The Hollow Sessions will be released digitally via Modern Sky on Friday 30th April 2021, with the band promising more surprises and announcements on new music in the very near future.
Frontman, Fran Doran says: “It’s been a rollercoaster for us all and while the ride still isn’t over, we’re all hoping for the best and hope more than anything that we’ll be on stage again by late summer. Between now and then, The Hollow Sessions presents new versions of the songs we’re really proud of, but we’re not done there. The only way can be up, can’t it?”
