Songs About Albums: Volume 2 is Coming!

You all remember Songs About Albums: Volume 1, right? It was a free-to-download compilation consisting of ten musical homages to such excellent LPs as Murmur and Tindersticks II and The Blue Album. It came out back in June - you can listen to it here if you missed it first time around.

Now, if you enjoyed Songs About Albums: Volume 1, you'll no doubt be pleased to learn that Songs About Albums: Volume 2 is coming very soon indeed. There's no solid release date yet, but I've already sorted out a list of ten contributors, and all being well, their tributes to their favourite albums will be online by the end of January 2016 at the latest.

In the meantime, here are a couple of things to whet your appetite. The artwork, supplied once again by the fabtastic Nest of Cogs, is already in the bag - here's what it looks like:

Rather eye-catching, no? But that's not all, dear reader! It gives me great pleasure to reveal that one of the ten tracks that will eventually make up Songs About Albums: Volume 2 is already done, dusted, and available to hear RIGHT NOW.

It's called Skin to Skin, it's by Laurence Made Me Cry, and it's her tribute to Things to Make and Do by Moloko. Have a listen:

As mentioned above, this track will feature on Songs About Albums: Volume 2 alongside contributions from nine similarly ace other artists, whose identities and chosen subjects will be revealed in due course. For now, please share Skin to Skin (and, of course, the entirety of Volume 1) with anyone who might enjoy it!
