New Gill Landry Album ‘Skeleton At The Banquet’ Out Today

Gill Landry’s new album Skeleton At The Banquet is out today! The album is quickly becoming regarded as a career-high and recognised as Gill’s most accomplished work to date. He describes his fifth solo outing and first album since 2017’s Love Rides A Dark Horse, Skeleton At The Banquet as “a series of reflections and thoughts on the collective hallucination that is America.”

Nobody’s Coming is the second single to be taken from the album and follows the release of I Love You Too, the first single released earlier this month. You can check out both of those and the rest of the album through the playlist below and, if you haven’t already, you can order your copy of the album here.

To promote the release of the album, Landry will be touring the UK and The Netherlands, kicking things off in London on the 28th of January with a slot at the Americanafest UK Showcase Festival, followed by an in-store performance at Rough Trade East.

Here’s some of that praise we were referring to:-

“Already a Grammy winner and Grand Ole Opry inductee with his former band, Skeleton At The Banquet deserves to see him hitting similar heights again… A career peak”
★★★★
MOJO

“Skeleton At The Banquet marks the preliminary high point of his career. His songwriting is at a high level, the arrangements are warm and deep and with his baritone and soulful guitar sounds he takes us on a trip to the heart of America. An album full of highlights, timeless music.”
RADIO EINS

“a hugely accomplished and at times troubling album that has already earned its place in “Best Of” year-end lists. Enjoy the feast.”
FOLK RADIO

“Parallels have been drawn with Leonard Cohen; when you add the crafted musings and uncluttered arrangements the comparison is complete.”
AMERICANA MUSIC SHOW

“Dark, perfectly weighted fifth from US folk songwriter… Landry is a master of the smouldering cowboy ballad”
8/10
UNCUT

“A compelling affair and Landry’s best yet”
★★★★
THANK FOLK FOR THAT

“a clutch of poetic, vivid narratives sung in his trademark rich baritone…Landry pulls back from heartbreak to deliver his best record yet”.
★★★★
ISLINGTON GAZETTE

“Its minimalistic, laid back and brooding approach perfectly captures an artist at the top of his game. Late night candle light listening of the highest calibre and a wonderful album to kick off a new decade.”
LONESOME HIGHWAY

“there’s no debating the quality of this album. Landry has produced another outstanding entry in his growing catalog.”
