Andrew Combs will be returning to the UK this January for a string of live dates as part of his 2019 European tour. The news arrives as Combs unveils his first album is to be re-released digitally with two newly recorded versions of songs + repackaged and available on vinyl for the first time.
With the deluxe digital reissue of Andrew Combs’ debut album Worried Man the Texas-bred, Nashville based artist has been given that rare opportunity; a do-over. The deluxe version of Worried Man (reissued via Loose), will include two songs from the album Andrew has re-recorded for the release.
The first of those tracks, “Too Stoned To Cry (2019 Recut)”, was released today on all digital services. Listen here.
Andrew has continued to perform the song live, but it has never felt exactly right to him in its original recording. “I’ve always wanted to re-record ‘Too Stoned to Cry,’” said Combs of the track. “I love the song, but can’t stand my vocal take on the original. I sound so young and pitchy! This is just an updated version, somewhat replicating how we play it every night on the road.”
Andrew also took on “Take It From Me” and reworked the track for the deluxe digital reissue. He recounts, “I’ve always liked the sentiment of the song, but the original musical arrangement now bores me a little bit. We decided change it up a bit, going for a glossy, Chris Isaak kind of feel.”
Worried Man will be re-issued on 18 January, repackaged and available for the first time on heavyweight white vinyl, as well as on CD and as a deluxe digital package.
Focusing on the present, Andrew Combs will undertake his most extensive European tour to date, with shows throughout the UK, The Netherlands, Germany and Scandinavia starting this week and continuing into early February. Andrew then returns to the US for dates, pairing for co-bills with Erin Rae, then Caitlin Rose. UK dates as follows:
