Umphrey's McGee The London Session: A Day At Abbey Road Studios on 180g 2LP + Download
As Umphrey's Mcgee prepared for three nights at the Brooklyn Bowl London in June 2014, longtime producer Manny Sanchez shot manager Kevin Browning a half-joking email: “Thinking about how to get myself over to London...UM at Abbey Road?” And so The London Session: A Day At Abbey Road Studios was born.
Less than ten months after the release of Similar Skin, Umphrey’s is pleased to unveil their latest studio album straight from the world’s most famous recording mecca. The stealth recording operation yielded ten tracks, from a single day, in Abbey Road’s legendary Studio 2. Titanium-strength rockers fit jigsaw-like among earworm acoustic arrangements on a record that checks all the boxes.
What exactly do you do with a mere 12 hours in this iconic studio? You make the most of it. With few expectations of what the session might actually yield, a handful of tracks quickly turned into an album’s worth of material. Acoustic arrangements, new versions of setlist regulars, and the first cover ever to grace a UM studio record are all infused with the spirit of Abbey Road!
