The Music Drop Take The Long Road And Walk It (Live At Temple Newsam)

2nd August 2022 0 By John Deaux

Following their rapturously received comeback shows at Glasgow Barrowland and Leeds Temple Newsam Park earlier this year, The Music today release the first taster from their forthcoming Live At Temple Newsam album. 


Take The Long Road And Walk It (Live At Temple Newsam) is accompanied by a live video shot at the band’s huge hometown Leeds gig in June.

The band will be screening a live film of their full Temple Newsam performance on their YouTube channel exclusively to fans who have pre-ordered live album via their web-store.

The live events marked the Kippax four piece’s first gigs together since 2011 and 20 years since the release of their classic eponymously named debut album. With a warm up at the legendary Barrowland venue selling out in under an hour and over 12,000 people filling the grounds of Temple Newsam House to celebrate the band’s return – the live set draws on songs from all three of the band’s studio albums, with the legendary intensity and power that their live shows were always famed for.

Speaking about the reunion shows The Music lead singer Robert Harvey said, “11 years is a long time. We had to put a lot behind us, raw emotions and fears – what would it be like? Who will come? Can we still do it? But it really was an unbelievable few days. The shows were incredible and the crowd gave it their all and that helped us to do the same. What we have with the four of us is unique and special, and I think you can hear that again on this recording of a day we’ll never forget”.


Live At Temple Newsam will be released September 2nd on the band’s own label through Townsend Music.
