Title - 'All This Will Be Yours'
Artist - Bruce Soord
Bruce Soord, the multi-instrumentalist, songwriter and front man for internationally renowned experimental rock outfit The Pineapple Thief, will be releasing his sophomore solo album this coming November 3rd, 2019 via KSCOPE Music.
Taking elements from the recent musical developments with The Pineapple Thief, as well as an ambition to experiment with his own sound, All This Will Be Yours is an album of acoustic and personal vision from Soord.
Described by Soord as an observational record, it is inspired by the joy felt by the birth of his third child juxtaposed by the local deprivation in his hometown.
“Emotionally it was a pretty unique and eventful time," Soord explains. "My wife was due to have our third child at any time, but she managed to come to see the final date of the TPT tour at London’s Shepherd’s Bush Empire."
"After the show that night we returned home to Yeovil and the next day our baby girl arrived. So, we had this new life in our lives and it introduced a very different perspective on the world around me. I was totally inspired and started writing almost immediately.”

The sound of All This Will Be Yours features modern production elements, as well as acoustic guitars delicately layered with samples.
Ever present are Soord's familiar vocals, which deliver an emotive and accessible view into his contrasting feelings when writing about austerity whilst his newborn dozed in the studio.
In truth, the whole affair is, as one would fully expect, a more low key, emotional and dampened experience than a Pineapple Thief album, but lest we blur over the fact that this new collection of songs are, without a shadow of a doubt, wickedly engaging, well developed, and well performed tracks in their own right.
Less intense and less dramatic than what fans of Pineapple Thief might be accustomed to, but elegant creations with a melancholic, emotional feel to them that should still come across as familiar; especially given Soord's vocal pitch.
Furthermore, the audio has been recorded as two continuous linear pieces to replicate the pleasure of listening to an album on vinyl and was mastered by fellow The Pineapple Thief member Steve Kitch.
All This Will Be Yours will be released on CD, LP, digitally and as a deluxe hardback book 3 disc edition featuring the album on CD, with an extra CD of acoustic re-workings and bonus studio tracks plus a DVD with All This Will Be Yours as a Hi-res 24/88 WAV stereo album, Hi res 24/88 WAV acoustic album and Hi res 24/88 WAV bonus studio tracks, all of which will also be available in 24/88 DTS 5.1 surround.
