Patrick Watson announces London show and new album

Patrick Watson Bush Hall May 2015 v1 WebWe’re very happy to announce that Patrick Watson will return to the UK this May, performing an intimate show at London’s Bush Hall on May 11th!

The show coincides with the release of his fifth album ‘Love Songs For Robots’ due May 12th. Check out the album trailer now: http://bit.ly/1Bk72oD  The new album was recorded at Capitol Studios in Los Angeles and Pierre Marchand Studio in Montreal. Of the record, some of which was debuted at private concerts in small loft spaces, Watson explains, “I started thinking about things in a very mechanical way. I found it interesting how we would use our senses to come up with an emotional reaction. As I get older you get to know yourself better and I realized that a lot of my emotional reactions were mechanical responses and that was hugely influential. I didn’t want to be a robot. But the reason why we are superior to computers is that we have emotions and I realized that emotions are mechanical so the only thing left between us and robots is curiosity and inspiration – and I don’t think you can program that into a computer. That’s definitely where I was at when I started writing the record.”

Don’t miss this very special show! Tickets on sale Friday 27th Feb at 8am: http://www.communionmusic.co.uk/live/
