Thomas White announces the release of a new EP available from July 5th. White’s interpretation of Warren Zevon’s tale of heartbreak, Accidentally Like A Martyr, leads a 5 track digital EP that features White’s take on artists as diverse as Louis Armstrong and Sparklehorse. Track listing as follows:
Accidentally Like A Martyr – Warren Zevon
That’s How I Escaped My Certain Fate – Mission Of Burma
We Have All The Time In The World – Louis Armstrong
Little Fat Baby – Sparklehorse
I’ll See You In My Dreams – Joe Brown
The highlight for White will be an appearance at this year’s Meltdown on June 12th curated by Richard Thompson. “What an honour to be invited to play. Richard Thompson’s always been one of my favourite guitarists and Fairport Convention’s Liege And Lief remains a groundbreaking classic to this day” says White.
For this special performance White will be adding choir, violin and cornet to his regular line up, beefing up a dazzling stage show that sees him resplendent in a brocade cape and the promise of much glitter. Personally he’s looking forward to catching sets by “absurdly talented” jazz singer Krystle Warren and “one of the most innovative British rock bands working today” Field Music.
