    Caravan Announce the Release of Their New Album 'Its None Of Your Business'

    Prog Legends Caravan Announce the Release of Their New Album Its None Of Your Business

    The new studio album out on October 8, 2021

    Prog legends Caravan announce the release of their new album Its None Of Your Business to be released on CD format on October 8, 2021 and as a vinyl LP, on November 5, 2021 on Madfish Music.

    Its None Of Your Business is Caravans first album since Paradise Filter (2013) and features nine new songs plus one instrumental track influenced, to a degree, by the events and restrictions placed on society over the past 18 months.

    Caravan are Pye Hastings (guitar, vocals). Geoffrey Richardson (viola, mandolin, guitar), Jan Schelhaas (keyboards) and Mark Walker (drums). Lee Pomeroy (ELO, Rick Wakeman and Take That) has guested as bass player, following the departure of Jim Leverton, while Jimmy Hastings has also guested on flute.

    The album was recorded, as restrictions allowed, in the old-fashioned way between 24th June and 4th July 2021 at Rimshot Studio, Bredgar near Sittingbourne. Sitting round in a circle having eye to eye contact, a large sound room was required, Pye Hastings explained. I much prefer this method because you can bounce ideas off each other as they occur, and voice encouragement when the whole thing begins to click.

    And it is much more rewarding to be able to throw insults at each other in person rather than down a telephone line or via email. This is something we are all very experienced at, believe me!

    This togetherness characterizes Its None Of Your Business with Caravans trademark warmth and humor and, also, a sensitivity reflecting the times in which we are living. Sitting among Caravans typically whimsical tales Down From London and If I Was To Fly sit the heartfelt and poignant Spare A Thought and Every Precious Little Thing which looks forward to a return to normality.

    Spare a Thought is a song that I hope will jog people to remember those unfortunate people caught up in the pandemic, Hastings explains. All those people who denied refers to the idiots who don't follow the scientific advice. I get angry about that and the line Sure are interesting times refers to an old Chinese saying: may you live in interesting times.

    Lyrics can sometimes be my Achilles Heel, trying to find anything meaningful to write about. But sitting in front of a blank screen with a pandemic raging all around, it was hard not to be influenced by the dreadful events going on. The lockdown certainly focused the mind when it came to writing the lyrics.

    About Caravan
    Caravan are one of the doyens of the progressive rock and the Canterbury scene, formed in 1968 and blending rock, jazz, folk and classical influences into a warm and distinctive sound.

    Founder member Pye Hastings (guitar/vocals) remains as Caravans guiding light and primary songwriter. Geoffrey Richardson (viola, mandolin, guitar) first played with Caravan between 1972 and 1981 and returned to the fold in 1995. Their previous 14 studio albums and numerous live recordings have seen them attract a large and faithful following and Caravan toured regularly until the restrictions of the COVID-19 pandemic. They have a UK tour scheduled for October 2021 and have interest, from abroad, for overseas tours to Japan, Canada and South America.

    The legends of the Canterbury scene band are being celebrated in a lavish 37-disc box set, entitled Who Do You Think We Are, released on Madfish on 20th August.

    ^^^ Agreed!
    What can this strange device be? When I touch it, it brings forth a sound.

    "They have a UK tour scheduled for October 2021 and have interest, from abroad, for overseas tours to Japan, Canada and South America."

    While I'd love to see US in that list, I'd drive to Montreal for a chance to see them again
