The live album is due to drop July 14th, in time for the gig's anniversary.
Gerry Cinnamon is back in the recording studio working on his third album, The Live Album: Live at Hampden Park. Cinnamon fans can look forward to reliving the close of his summer dates in 2022 when he performed to 100,000 people at Scotland’s national football stadium. Gerry is releasing a double album, capturing the raucous energy generated between the musician in his hometown and his incredible fans.
With mass fan singalongs and a dedicated following, Gerry’s gigs have become a thing of folklore, and Hampden Park’s gig was no exception. The 2022 gig stands as a memento of the summer when music came roaring back to the fans.
Speaking on his upcoming live record, Gerry has said, “Live album out July. Bout time I put out a live album. The tunes aren’t complete until they’re sung live. Crowd are part of the band. Been meaning to do it for years but been caught up in a wee whirlwind. Had to be done for Hampden tho. Album three cooking in the pot as well.”
Previously unreleased track ‘Sacred’- a stunning tribute to his hero Billy Connolly with his own rendition of ‘I Wish I Was in Glasgow’, and fan favourite ‘Discoland’ will be included in the upcoming album, along with tracks from his two hit albums like ‘Dark Days’, ‘Sun Queen’, ‘Ghost’, ‘Where We’re Going’ and platinum-certified singles ‘Sometimes’ and ‘Belter’.
The rising success of the Scottish singer-songwriter initially began in 2017 with his self-released debut album, Erratic Cinematic, which went on to become a platinum-selling record.
Later in 2020, his highly-anticipated second album, The Bonny, went straight to number 1 in the UK and Ireland’s Official Album Charts, and became the third-biggest selling record of that year in the UK. In an organic ascent, Cinnamon has gone on to become one of the UK’s biggest independent artists.
The history-making shows at Hampden Park on July 16th and 17th, marked the end Gerry’s record-breaking 2021-2022 tour. He also performed at Malahide Castle, Dublin, and Musgrave Park Stadium, Cork, and set the record as the the first artist to sell out three headline shows at the Belsonic, Belfast, where he played to over 60,000 fans.
