SEEN has had a sneak preview of the album and is delighted to say that Albert’s trademark soulful vocals and particular brand of well-written accessible pop continues to enthrall his audience. SEEN’s favourites were ‘Dream Team’ and ‘Riding Shotgun’. The great thing about Albert’s songs are the skilful way he tells a story with his lyrics, and also the way in which he captures a particular moment in the progress of love. Anyone who’s experienced the heady rush of love, and the feeling of invincibility that comes with it will instantly identify with Albert’s songs.

It’s great, too, to see live gigs in the intimate setting of a church. It turns the gig into something that London does so well: an experience. Albert Man is off on tour soon and is set to play the Fiddler’s Elbow on the 17th of May.
