Chris Helme, frontman of John Squire’s post-Stone Roses band The Seahorses and acclaimed solo artist, is set to bring a collection of brand new material to audiences for the first time in a decade, as he tours his much-anticipated forthcoming album, World of my Own.
The 2024 tour comes off the back of an incredible run of sold-out gigs across 2022/ 23 and will see Chris hit the road once again, taking in venues across the UK.
Set for release on 23rd March 2024, the new album World of my Own is a diary of a 10-year period in Chris’ life.
Weaving between moments of soul-searching darkness and bursts of appreciation, gratitude and lightness, the album speaks to the full spectrum of relationships that colour our lives and the distances that sit between ourselves and others.
World of my Own follows his critically acclaimed 2012 record The Rookery. “Echoing the fragility of Gram Parsons, while flirting with the rustic side of Neil Young” (Uncut), his “dreamy but driven indie folk” (Q Magazine), and blistering voice continue to stop audiences in their tracks.
The record has been a long time coming for both Chris and his legion of fans. Lost recordings and stolen guitars, even before Covid shut down the music industry in 2020, are just some of the obstacles that made appearances along the road to its release. But with its lyricism, stirring guitars and rich production, the record has been worth the wait.
As much as Chris relishes spending time in the studio, the songs come to life when played live, with an inimitable feeling of togetherness as the lyrics land and resonate with the audience.
You can expect Chris’ blend of honesty and anecdotes, following a 30-year career in the music industry, alongside his distinctive vocals and a raw, enthralling performance, that his solo shows have become known for.
Chris will play the new album – largely for the first time live – alongside numbers from The Seahorses’ seminal album which earned them an outpouring of adoration around the world. With earworm tunes running through your head long after you first hear them, it seems Chris’ new songs look set to become just as beloved as the old ones.
