Lonely Robot, the new project masterminded by producer, guitarist and vocalist John Mitchell (It Bites, Frost*, Arena), recently announced the release of its debut album Please Come Home on 23rd February 2015. A teaser has been launched in advance of the records release, welcoming listeners into the Lonely Robot world, and you can check that out here:
Backed by the storming rhythm section of Nick Beggs on bass and Craig Blundell on drums, the album also sees guest appearances from Peter Cox (Go West), Nik Kershaw, Steve Hogarth (Marillion), Heather Findlay, Kim Seviour (Touchstone), Jem Godfrey (Frost*) as well as narration provided by British actor Lee Ingleby (Master & Commander, Harry Potter).
John Mitchell had this to say about the project:
"I'd long thought about doing an album where I could have total control from start to finish with the music, lyrics, production, and choosing who I wanted to contribute - expanding from the idea of just a solo album. Musically, this album is very proggy, but more about atmosphere than technical expertise, inspired by my love of science fiction and interest in the evolution of the human race."
The track-listing for the album is as follows:
2. God vs. Man
3. The Boy in the Radio
4. Why Do We Stay?
5. Lonely Robot
6. A Godless Sea
9. Are We Copies?
10. Humans Being
11. The Red Balloon
