Wakelines

XTRA MILE RECORDINGS

Released: 28th September 2018



‘Wakelines’ is the new album from Mull Historical Society. Produced by
the Mercury Award-winning songwriter and Brit Award-winning Producer
Bernard Butler, this is Colin’s eighth album and was recorded in London at
Butler’s studio.
This album is the first time Colin has worked with someone like Bernard Butler.
“I had a feeling about the album that I needed to get somewhere new – it was
Bernard who realised what I was saying was I needed to get under my skin,
lay myself bare.”
This is Colin’s first release in over 2 years, but he hasn’t been procrastinating in
the studio. Following his first novel in 2015 ‘The Letters of Ivor Punch’ – which
went on to win the Edinburgh International Book Festival First Book Award –
he has now adapted it for the stage and has just released two new books. A
memoir about his childhood growing up on the Isle of Mull entitled ‘The Boy
In The Bubble’ which is his contribution to the W&N Books ‘Hometown Tales –
Highlands & Hebrides’ series of original tales by regional writers. There is also
his first children’s picture book ‘The Humdrum Drum’ (Little Door Books) about
an orchestra drum, promoting togetherness and teamwork, which comes with
an accompanying CD of original related songs and audiobook from Colin.
