Coming less than ten months on the heels of their most recent studio release Similar Skin, the prolific UM waits for no one. The latest from these road warriors, The London Session, features ten tracks recorded in one day at the worlds most famous recording Mecca, Abbey Road Studios. Channeling the genre-spanning legends who have recorded in the renowned Studio 2, the album features ferociously tight, titanium-strength rockers fitting jigsaw-like alongside earworm acoustic numbers. TLS also includes the first cover the band has ever included on a studio album, I Want You (Shes So Heavy), a one of the most inventive and hardest work bands in the business.

Reviews:

Less than ten months after the release of Similar Skin, Umphrey’s is pleased to unveil their latest studio album straight from the world’s most famous recording mecca. The stealth recording operation yielded ten tracks, from a single day, in Abbey Road’s legendary Studio 2. Titanium-strength rockers fit jigsaw-like among earworm acoustic arrangements on a record that checks all the boxes.

What exactly do you do with a mere 12 hours in this iconic studio? You make the most of it. With few expectations of what the session might actually yield, a handful of tracks quickly turned into an album’s worth of material. Acoustic arrangements, new versions of setlist regulars, and the first cover ever to grace a UM studio record are all infused with the spirit of Abbey Road.
