Andy Bell’s brand new album ‘Torsten The Beautiful Libertine’, featuring songs from the stage show of the same name which opened in London this week, is released today on CD and via digital download.
‘Torsten The Beautiful Libertine’ is a continuation of the story of Andy first started to explore in ‘Torsten The Bareback Saint’, the first Torsten show, in London and Edinburgh in 2014.
From the album press release: “On the album Andy assumes the character of Torsten who has had, over time, many lovers and friends whom ultimately he has outlived. That he himself survives is a bittersweet truth, but it is with an increasingly melancholic emotional distance from people. The new album is a wonderfully evocative exposition of the mind, mirth and mania of an ‘everyman’ who finds himself in extraordinary circumstances. The songs effortlessly combine pop and theatricality in their lush arrangements and Andy’s voice has never been so dramatically expressive.”
