More Info:

WELCOME TO THE PLANET' is the next studio album by Big Big Train and comes six months after the release of the band's critically acclaimed top 40 album 'COMMON GROUND'. As with 'COMMON GROUND', 'WELCOME TO THE PLANET' sees Big Big Train retain their progressive roots but also take influence from all spheres of music. The album's opener 'Made From Sunshine', co-written by guitarist Dave Foster and singer David Longdon, has guitar lines redolent of Johnny Marr and vocal harmonies reminiscent of the Finn Brothers/Crowded House, with violinist Clare Lindley sharing lead vocals with Longdon. Elsewhere on the album, keyboard player Carly Bryant gets her first Big Big Train writing credit and lead vocal on the captivating title track. The two recent singles 'The Connection Plan' and 'Lanterna' are included along with a winter themed song 'Proper Jack Froster', a bittersweet tale of childhood. The album is completed by the delicate acoustic 'Capitoline Venus', the beautiful 'Oak And Stone' and a pair of dazzling instrumentals, 'A Room With No Ceiling' and 'Bats In The Belfry', written by guitarist/keyboardist Rikard Sjöblom and drummer Nick D'Virgilio respectively.
