Wilson & Wakeman return with new disc and Stables date

Posted 17th January 2024

When Wilson & Wakeman make their return to The Stables at Wavendon this January, they arrive armed with a new album; their third release, ‘Can We Leave The Light On Longer?’ hits shelves on January 12.

Aside from Damian’s vocal and acoustic guitar abilities, and Adam showing light work on piano, Hammond organ and acoustic and electric guitars (and percussion) the release is also swelled by trumpet and an 18-strong choir.

There is a very personal depth to the songs, Damian said.
“The album is about how we are connected as human beings and what drives us to be alive. It tells tales of hopeful inspiring dreams and our fight to live and function, with the ultimate and inevitable loss we face through mortality.”

For those not already acquainted with these Pulse regulars, Damian is a songwriter and singer who has put his name to more than 70 album releases, while you might say Adam was Black Sabbath’s fifth member, working as their keyboard player, and on Ozzy’s solo ventures.
He’s also toured extensively with the likes of Slash, Annie Lennox, Will Young and his dad, Rick Wakeman.

“We’re really excited to be on tour promoting our latest studio album,” Adam told Pulse, “I think it’s our most personal album to date. We’ll be playing lots of songs that people associate us with along with some from our back catalogue and of course there will be songs from the new album.”

Damian and Adam play the venue on January 18.
