INTO THE WILD UNKNOWN WITH FRED ABBOTT
FORMER Noah and The Whale guitarist and keyboardist FRED ABBOTT has today released his new album, ‘Shining Under the Soot,’ as Fred Abbott & The Wild Unknown.
And blistering lead-single, ‘What Kind of Trouble,’ featuring Steve Llewellyn on lead vocals, is also available now.
The psychedelic, headspin video for ‘What Kind of Trouble’ was filmed in a single take using 360 cameras at London’s Karma Studios.
Following the split of NATW, Abbott released his 2015 solo album, ‘Serious Poke,’ and let loose with the classic rock riffs and infectious hooks that, in hindsight, made his influence apparent on the later NATW material.
In the intervening years Abbott has been paying the bills as jobbing producer, writer and session player working with a string of upcoming and established artists including Gabriella Cilmi, Tom Chaplin (Keane), Jamie Lawson, Cassyette, Charlotte OC, Kawala, and Megan McKenna.
