In celebration of the release of his most recent critically acclaimed, and Mercury Prize nomianted album “hugo”, Loyle Carner has announced a reinterpreted record of the album from his esteemed Royal Albert Hall show in October 2023. With the LP available to stream and on CD/vinyl from the 24th May, Loyle has come through to drop a new version of “A Lasting Place”, with live band drums taking elements from liquid drums and garage drum beats.

“An incomparable live-performer and creative virtuoso, Carner’s Royal Albert Hall show – which coincided with his 29th birthday – saw an array of very special guests including Athian Akec, Jordan Rakei and JNR Williams, and an electrifying live-band, join for a truly immersive show in storied surrounds”.

Whilst touring ‘hugo’ for the last couple years I noticed that the music began to change as the shows went on. I wanted to catch a snapshot of their evolution and document how alive and fluid the things we make are. A special way to spend my birthday” – Loyle Carner
