Limited Autographed Edition available exclusively from Propermusic (Only whilst stocks last).

Fourth studio album from the acclaimed folk singer-songwriter Neil McSweeney who emerged from the towering of Sheffield music that also gave the world Arctic Monkeys and Richard Hawley and has since established himself as "a songwriter of rare ability" (R2). Song lyrics that deal with the contrasts and contradictions of life to romantic melodies as hopeful as they are melancholy, McSweeney's finely crafted songs have been championed by his peers as well as across national radio and mainstream and specialist press.

Since the release of his last album, 'Cargo', McSweeney has made increasingly big waves on the English folk scene picking up main stage festival appearances and collabora ng with the likes of Jon Boden and Fay Hield.

March 2017 sees the release of McSweeney's fourth album, 'A Coat Worth Wearing', the second release for new imprint Hudson Records. Produced by award-winning folk producer Andy Bell and building on the success of its predecessor, 'A Coat Worth Wearing' shows a marked development in Neil's sound and approach. Its nine songs were conceived as a piece and subsequently recorded together, largely in full-band live-takes, over seven days in the beau ful Welsh countryside.

McSweeney has toured extensively throughout the UK as well as in mainland Europe on his own and as support for the likes of Richard Hawley and Bellowhead. He will continue to tour around the release of 'A Coat Worth Wearing' then throughout 2017 and beyond.
