Stereophonics frontman announces new album and film
Stereophonics frontman Kelly Jones today announces the release of ‘Don’t Let The Devil Take Another Day’.
Featuring some of Stereophonics' finest moments reimagined, rearranged and intimately re-recorded by Kelly and his band, ‘Don’t Let The Devil Take Another Day’ is out on 4th December via Parlophone Records.
Recorded in a variety of locations across the UK in 2019, this carefully curated selection of tracks from one of the UK’s most prolific and successful songwriters hears Kelly pull together the songs that got him through the worst of times, whilst telling stories of how those songs came about.
The album gives the audience an honesty, truth and vulnerability not yet heard before.
‘Don’t Let The Devil Take Another Day’ was the perfect opportunity for Kelly to step away from the constraints that come with being the rock star and leading the mighty Stereophonics and create something more spontaneous, vulnerable and truly intimate.
This album captures one of the finest and most distinctive voices in British rock as he captivates an audience through song, anecdote, laughter and lament, and reconnects with the emotional heart of the songs that have grown with him throughout his career.
‘Don’t Let The Devil Take Another Day’ also completes a remarkable personal recovery from Kelly, who whilst touring in 2019 kept a secret from his band, crew and producers - a revelation that had threatened to undermine his career and future music making.
This hitherto untold story is brought to life in the startlingly heartfelt and deeply emotive documentary 'Don’t Let The Devil Take Another Day' - watch the teaser trailer here.
The documentary premieres at ‘The Doc n Roll Festival’ on 4th November, before reaching cinemas around the UK on 27th November via event cinema distributor Trafalgar Releasing.
Tickets for Kelly's film will be on sale from 5th November at DONTLETTHEDEVILTAKEANOTHERDAYFILM.com.
The new album includes a 21-track collection features a reimagining of 18 Stereophonics tracks, 2 tracks from Kelly’s 2007 solo album and an emotive take on Kris Kristofferson’s timeless classic, ‘Help Me Make It Through The Night’ and can be pre-ordered here.
