Brighton folk-punk band The Levellers have released the video for the newly reworked and acoustic version of Liberty Song, taken from their new album We The Collective, which is out now via On The Fiddle Recordings.
The new album, which coincides with the band’s 30th anniversary, was recorded at Abbey Road Studios and produced by John Leckie. It features a string section and new acoustic arrangements for eight of their previous singles including the aforementioned Liberty Song, Hope Street, and One Way.
Two brand new songs have also been recorded, providing something new for long time fans of the band.
Lead singer Mark Chadwick appeared on BBC Breakfast recently to discuss the band’s anniversary and new album and has said, “The different musicians, producer, and the studio combined to make something really special”.
The band will head out on a full acoustic tour starting in June where they will be playing the new arrangements with guest musicians, following their recent shows at Glasgow’s Celtic Connectionsfestival and the Roundhouse in London.
They have a date at York Barbican on July 19th.
