Beautiful guitar song called Solitaire for free download from Donnacha Costello‘s website ahead of the possible release of a very limited new album.
Since the release of his landmark album Together is The New Alone (2001), Donnacha Costello has been known as a composer of emotional and ethereal ambient music. Here, we present a collection of five ambient and guitar works recorded between 1995 and 2002 which have so far remained unreleased. Unheard Ambient and Guitar Works will be manufactured in an edition of 300 copies on transparent vinyl, packaged in a transparent sleeve. This release will not appear in stores and will be available for direct order only with shipping available worldwide. To give a flavour of the release, we offer one free download of the track Solitaire below.
However, note the “possible”. The idea is that orders will be taken (€13 inc. P&P) until the end of May, at which point, if pre-sales are sufficient, the vinyl will be made and packaged for the customer. Otherwise refunds will be made immediately. It’s an unusual idea and based on what I’ve heard of the music I think those vinyls should find a good home. If you’re interested, find out more on donnachacostello.com.
