New album from McAlmont and Nyman
4th November 2009
The Glare is the latest release from Michael Nyman Records
For the album David McAlmont selected various compositions by Michael Nyman and turned to world news for inspiration. These new songs, written in the first person, draw on a variety of subjects from 21st century piracy (Going to America), lothario world leaders (In Rai Don Giovanni), drug mules (In Laos) and banking errors (Take the Money and Run).
David McAlmont's exquisite voice has enthralled soul and jazz fans both as a solo artist and as one half of the hit-making duo McAlmont and Butler ''One day he will open his mouth and a cathedral will fall out'' Melody Maker. Michael Nyman is one of the UK's most prestigious and innovative composers whose work reached its widest audience through his film scores for The Piano, Greenaway's The Cook, The Thief, His Wife and Her Lover and The Draughtman’s Contract (available on MN Records)
