DOWNLOAD "GHOSTS" FROM www.troyredfern.com
Hailed as the King of British slide guitar, Troy Redfern, has today released a free download of a new song Ghosts taken from his upcoming album The Fire Cosmic released August 6th.
Ghosts is available as a free MP3 download at www.troyredfern.com
Ghosts opens with an atmospheric Appalachian style motif played on Troy’s trademark sound performed with heavily-worn 1929 National Triolian resonator guitar which sets the stylistic tone of his new studio album
Against the backdrop of Darby Todd’s ‘train beat’ drum shuffle, Ghosts gradually builds with subtly-layered acoustic textures, as it builds its way towards a massive chorus.
Dave Marks' understated "country feel" bassline underpins the verses, and creates a sonic wave in the solo section. Troy’s resonator guitar, surfs, ducks, weaves and reaches its final climax before hitting the chorus in high gear.
The new album follows five unprecedented albums Troy released in 2020. It was recorded at the legendary Rockﬁeld Studios in North Wales, the same studio where Queen recorded all their early albums including Sheer Heart Attack (1974) followed by A Night At The Opera (1975).
For the new album, Troy enlisted one of the best rhythm sections in the UK, including the legendary Darby Todd on drums (The Darkness, Martin Barre, Paul Gilbert), and virtuoso bass guitarist Dave Marks (Hans Zimmer).
