Today, British artist, poet and multi-instrumentalist Alabaster DePlume released his new album 'GOLD' via Chicago jazz label International Anthem. On the Friday of Rewire 2022, Alabaster DePlume will be joined by his band to perform a live set that includes material from GOLD. Read more and listen below.
Early reviews of the album have been overwhelmingly positive, so much so that Pitchfork highlighted it with their much-coveted 'Best New Music' accolade. Of the album they say:
"Alabaster DePlume is a lot of things—a saxophonist, a poet, an arranger, a social node in London’s jazz scene—but above all, he’s a person who wants you to treat yourself with more kindness, gentleness, and self-respect. On GOLD, his second album for International Anthem, he applies self-love like an exfoliant, scraping off the old skin of cynicism and exposing the clean and vulnerable surface below."

He has been praised as one of the most vital and adventurous artists to emerge from the UK in recent years, known for his fluid and intimate live music performances. Catch Alabaster DePlume live at the Koorenhuis on the Friday of Rewire 2022.
