Marty Willson-Piper

At last, the fifth solo album ‘Hanging Out In Heaven’ from Marty Willson-Piper (The Church, All About Eve) has been released on vinyl via Schoolkids Records. Now available on vinyl for the first time ever. Available on blue-tinged vinyl as a heavy-weight gatefold double LP,  it includes two bonus tracks ‘Queen In Her Jeans’ and ‘Dressed Up As You’. This album’s release was scheduled for Record Store Day2019.

It’s been a long wait for this vinyl edition of one of Marty’s seminal albums. Originally released in 2000 via San Francisco’s Heyday Records, the intention was always to release it on vinyl. 19 years later, it’s finally happening.

“At last, my fifth solo album, Hanging Out In Heaven, will be released through Schoolkids Records on Record Store Day. It’s been a long wait for one of my most well-received records. The album has new artwork and comes on blue double vinyl with two extra tracks. Recorded in sessions in L.A. and Sweden with the two added songs recorded in London, the album contains some of the most emotional and poignant songs I ever wrote,” says Marty Willson-Piper.

This album from Marty Willson-Piper follows up the success of last year’s Record Store Day vinyl release of ‘Spirit Level’ also via Schoolkids Records, which was originally released in 1992.
 
Marty Willson-Piper has been writing and performing internationally for over 35 years.

He is also lead singer and lyricist with Swedish band MOAT, a touring member of Swedish Prog legends Anekdoten, and half of the duo Noctorum with producer Dare Mason. Since the mid-1980s, Willson-Piper has maintained a steady solo output, releasing six solo studio albums and three live solo albums to date.

Marty Willson-Piper’s most recent album is ‘The Afterlife’ by his duo Noctorum in mid-February on CD and vinyl, also through Schoolkids Records. This successfully crowdfunded, this album has charted in four separate Billboard charts in the first week after release.
