BOLTON band Cherry Ghost has announced the release of a new album as part of this year's Record Store Day.

Record Store Day, which takes place on Saturday, August 29, sees over 200 independent record shops across the UK come together to celebrate their unique culture.

Special vinyl releases are made exclusively for the day and many shops and cities host artist performances and events to mark the occasion.

Thousands more shops celebrate the day around the globe in what’s become one of the biggest annual events on the music calendar.

Cherry Ghost formed in 2005, first as an alias for singer-songwriter Simon Aldred as a solo artist, before morphing into a full band.

Their debut album, Thirst for Romance, was released in July 2007 and entered the UK Album Charts at number seven.

Aldred now writes for other artists and recently co-wrote several songs with Liam Gallagher, including his 2017 top 40 hit For What It's Worth.

A spokesperson for Heavenly Records said: "After releasing all three of Cherry Ghost’s albums, as well as the singular LP from Simon’s other project Out Cold, we asked Cherry Ghost to perform as part of our 25th birthday celebrations back in 2015.

"Now, five years later, we can all relive that special matinee performance, immortalised on wax.

"Live At The Trades Club, Hebden Bridge sees Simon joined by Christian Madden and Grenville Harrop on keys and percussion for a stripped back, laid bare engagement with pure songsmith magic.

"Across two LPs, the trio cover much ground with classics like 4AM, People Help the People, and Mathematics, as well as seldom heard B-sides and tracks from Simon’s other project Out Cold.

"Overall this collection makes a serious case for Aldred being massively underrated in the canon of classic songwriters."

Cherry Ghost - Live at The Trades Club, Hebden Bridge - January 25, 2015 will be released on August 29 on 12 inch vinyl.
