Thirst For Romance (2LP Set)

Heavenly Recordings announce details of a vinyl repressing of Cherry Ghost’s classic debut ‘Thirst For Romance’. This is the first time this album has been pressed on vinyl since its release fifteen years ago, when a very small number of double vinyl sets were manufactured.

When ‘Thirst For Romance’ (Simon Aldred’s debut album asCherry Ghost) arrived in July 2007, it sounded out of step with so much of its musical surroundings – a world of X Factor winners and Favourite Worst Nightmares; Umbrellas and In Rainbows.

Simon’s album came from a different place to everything else – it was a soul record, in so much as it was from the soul, and about the human soul. And it was a proudly Northern record – a fact celebrated in the sound of Simon’s voice and the people and places that populated his songs. While the music might have evoked glorious vistas and wide open spaces, the view here was very much the post-industrial North. Fifteen years after its release,’Thirst For Romance’ musically sounds out of time, while Simon’slyrics resonate more deeply now more than ever.

‘Thirst For Romance’ was co-produced by Simon Aldred and Dan Austin. The album’s glorious breakout track ‘People Help The People’ – a prescient call for hope and empathy – gained a second life when covered by the artist Birdy. Doves frontman Jimi Goodwin plays drums on ‘Mathematics’ and ‘People Help The People’.
