They say long live the king and all, but nothing’s ever set in stone. A quarter of a century since his self-inflicted coronation, and self-released debut solo album,  Kenny Anderson – DIY pop voyager, ancestral seaside home restorer, squeezebox lothario, Fife for lifer, diamond miner, hijacker of hearts, and the man also known as King Creosote – has collaborated with the likes of Jon Hopkins, KT Tunstall, Beta Band’s Lone Pigeon, and had his songs covered and performed by artists including Patti Smith and Simple Minds.

Yet he’s still standing: fallible, doubtful, patched together, bloody-minded and unbowed. He’s got a new LP, despite or perhaps because of it all. It’s called I DES.

Supporting the release of I DES in November, King Creosote played 3 x Sold Out shows; 2 at Queens Hall in Edinburgh and another at EartH Theatre in London. The album has had huge support on National Radio and demand for more Live performances has never been stronger. Another Sold Out show is coming at Old Fruitmarket in Glasgow for Celtic Connections on 28th January and the time has come to take the show on the road.

The “Any Port in a Storm” Tour sees King Creosote touring in the UK hitting coastal towns and Islands in Scotland with some shows in Northern England too.

Praise for I DES :

**** “Moving and profound” – The Times

**** “One of the grand meditations on life and death” – MOJO

**** “Uplifting epics from indie royalty” – Uncut

***** “Unmissable” – Record Collector
