Lomond Campbell has announced details of the release of a new track,
‘Every Florist In Every Town’.
The track is taken from his debut album, ‘Black River Promise’, which will be released on Heavenly Recordings on Friday November 3rd 2017.
Talking about the track Lomond said:
“I wrote this song in the middle of a particularly gnarly highland winter and deliberated a lot on whether it suited Black River Promise. After adding strings and drums it became one of my favourites from the album. Lyrically it follows the story of a tempestuous relationship; so much so that every florist in every town the pair lived in know their names.”
The track is accompanied by a stunning video directed by the Coconut Island collective, which includes acclaimed Scottish photographers / film makers Brian Sweeney and Donald Milne, and shot around Lomond’s Scottish highland base.
Talking about the video, Sweeney said:
“It was shot in and around where Lomond stays, basically his journey to and around there. The closing shot is essentially the album sleeve, but they’ve cut the trees down which is a bit of a bone of contention with the locals.”
The video was premiered this morning by our friends at Caught by the River, Read more HERE

Originally released on Campbell’s own acclaimed Triassic Tusk label, which he runs with DJ Stephen Marshall, at the end of 2016, the album was discovered by Jeff Barrett of Heavenly Recordings who have subsequently re-mastered the record, updated the
artwork and are set to give it a wider release.
Hailing from the Scottish borders and a former long-time resident of Edinburgh, Campbell, eager to flee the clamour and turbulence of the city upped sticks a couple of years ago, setting up home, and studio, in a leaking, decrepit, asbestos-ridden school house in the shadow of Ben Nevis.’Black River Promise’ is very much a chronicle of this transition from the white noise of the city to the near-silence of his new highland home. Deep, rich, astonishing and lyrically engaging, the album effortlessly skips between melancholic introspection and joyful euphoria.
