C’mon was recorded in an old church in Duluth and mixed in Hollywood with producer Matt Beckley working alongside the band. Singer Alan Sparhawk describes C’mon simply as “Warm, pretty, large like Nashville without the country. Mim and I are talking to each other in the lyrics, sometimes it’s not pretty, but it’s as honest as love.”
Low’s music recently reached a new audience via a rather unmistakable voice. On his 2010 solo album Band of Joy, Robert Plant covered two Low songs from their 2005 release The Great Destroyer garnering a Grammy nomination for Best Solo Rock Vocal Performance for his interpretation of “Silver Rider.”
On March 16th, during this year’s South by Southwest Music Festival in Austin, TX, Low will perform an intimate and undoubtedly memorable show at St. David’s Sanctuary which will serve as the first of a 28-date world tour in support of the new album.
