Convening in Paris in 2017 to write and record together, the Primal Scream front man and Savages vocalist and solo artist created the collaborative album ‘Utopian Ashes’, released on 2 July 2021.

The project explores the loss, miscommunication and emotional inarticulacy that a married couple experience as they realize that their relationship is breaking down.

The collection draws on the tradition of country soul classics, such as Gram Parsons and Emmylou Harris’s 'Grievous Angel' and George Jones and Tammy Wynette’s 'We Go Together', to deal with the heavy realities of love turning sour.

It’s an album for people who have dealt with the inevitable sadness that comes with age and acknowledged the realities of life. There is no sweetening of the pill, but it does achieve what should be the goal of all good art: to make us feel less alone. And while it’s not autobiographical, it channels heartfelt truth from the songwriters’ own experiences.

Maximum of 6 tickets per booking.

Over 14s only (under 16s must be accompanied by an adult over 18).
