Studio Album - November 2018

Andy Mackay will release his new album 3Psalms on 29th November 2018

The 3Psalms started as an experimental project in the mid ‘90s, aiming to be a synthesis of all his varied influences from his classical training, rock and roll, avant-garde electronica and even years as a boy chorister.

Picking up in 2012, Andy went back into the studio, scoring strings, choir, synthesisers, guitar and some other rock elements. Of course, Andy’s distinctive sax sound weaves throughout the piece.

Why Psalms? “I have long been fascinated by this collection of ancient poetry and song which has permeated our cultural life. I have tried to reflect this by using the original Hebrew and Latin - the language in which they were written - as well as 17th Century English of the Book of Common Prayer. People of faith will find themselves in familiar territory of prise and mystery and worship while atheists and agnostics can join the extraordinary debate in which the Psalmists sometimes turn from a feeling that God is totally absent or unknowable to arguing with Him because He isn’t doing what they want!

Lead vocals are by the amazing new talent Harry Day-Lewis, joining guitarist Phil Manzanera, the Czech National Philharmonic Orchestra and some of Britain’s finest session musicians.

Defying genres, 3Psalms can be seen as a post-rock symphony or oratorio, or simply as the product of 40 years of rock and roll experimentation.
