The Unthanks are back in top gear and touring for the first time in two years,
to showcase forthcoming album, Sorrows Away, alongside performances of
favourites such as the King of Rome, Magpie, Starless and Mount the Air.
While the past seven years have been as prolific as any, the new record
will be the first, full, non-project based unthanks record since Mount the
Air won BBC folk album of the year in 2015. Promising, as the song goes,
to “drive sorrows away”, The Unthanks hope that both tour and record will
be uplifting for one and all.
