Thieves’ Kitchen are proud to announce the forthcoming release of their latest album The Clockwork Universe. Pre-orders for CDs will be available worldwide from The Merch Desk from 23rd August 2015. The Clockwork Universe is an album exploring the human experience of a complex world.
These are songs about people whose experience brings them into contact with a universe of science and learning, whether as a child (Prodigy), a neglected spouse (The Scientist’s Wife), young lovers (Library Song) or as a bystander confronted with the inexorable progress of industrialisation (Railway Time).
Two exquisite instrumental arrangements (Astrolabe, Orrery) bring to mind a bygone age of scientific exploration, and the candlelit solitude of the seeker.
