GRUFF RHYS - BABELSBERG

Gruff Rhys announces new album, single and video // Gruff Rhys yn cyhoeddi albym, sengl a fidio newydd!

Ah! Greetings my friends,

I’m happy to announce that my new album of 10 songs ‘Babelsberg’ is coming out on Rough Trade on 8th June. It features the BBC NOW orchestra with Kliph Scurlock, Osian Gwynedd and Steve Black on Drums, piano, bass and I’m singing and playing guitar.

It’s available to pre-order now with a limited run of completely unimaginable 12” x 24” holographic panoramic encased vinyl version of it exclusive to the Rough Trade Records webstore. The vinyl was cut from a 96k high resolution master. The extremely long sleeve was designed by Mark James and features an illustration by Uno Moralez.

Also finished is my new music video, shot especially for the song Frontier Man, in Cardiff, Wales and the Cardiff of the imagination. Watch me as I go in search of a bin through the deepest recesses, and frozen tundra of my mind. Yes, you heard right.

 

Talking of Cardiff, I’ll be playing my new album in full with the 72 musician strong BBC National Orchestra Wales at The WMC Cardiff on June 10th 2018.

Followed by a performance at the Barbican, London on September 12th with the 21 piece BBC Contemporary Orchestra and at the RNCM Manchester on September 16th with the 21 musicians from the RNCM Orchestra.

That’s it for now, looking forward to getting back on the grey snake*

Howls from the hills, Gruff

Annwyl gyfeillion,


Braint yw cael cyhoeddi fod fy record hir newydd yn cael ei gyhoeddi ar Fehefin y degfed gan recordiau Rough Trade. Babelsberg yw ei henw - teitl Almaeneg, ond 10 cân yn yr iaith Saesneg sydd arni,(mae gen i gwpwl o recordiau Cymraeg ar y gweill gyda llaw) ac yn fy nghyfeilio mae Cerddorfa Genedlaethol Cymru, Kliph Scurlock, Osian Gwynedd a Steve Black.

Byddaf yn ymddangos yn Nghaerdydd (yr un go iawn) gyda 72 o gerddorion y gorfforaeth ddarlledu genedlaethol ar Fehefin y 10fed yn nghanolfan y Mileniwm.

Hefyd bydd cyngherddau a cherddorfeydd chydig yn llai, yn y Barbican, Llundain ar Fedi y 12fed, ac ym Manceinion yn y RNCM ar Fedi 16.

Ta waeth, pob hwyl am y tro,

Gruff
