    Posted: October 01 2009 at 15:31
The new Big Big Train CD, The Underfall Yard will be released on 15th December. From today until the release date, the album can be pre-ordered here for an introductory price of just £8, which includes worldwide shipping. It will not be available from any other source before the 15th December. Pre-orders will be shipped so that the CD arrives on, or slightly before, the release date.
 
The Underfall Yard is the first Big Big Train album to feature our new singer David Longdon. Across the 60 minutes of the album there are also powerful performances from Nick DíVirgilio, Francis Dunnery, Jem Godfrey and Dave Gregory.
 
We have made all 23 minutes of the title track available for free download in high quality audio here.
 
Even if you don't want to buy any Big Big Train music at the moment, please download the track and listen to what we think is an important contribution to progressive music. On the BBT website there is a music player where another song from The Underfall yard can be heard (plus some songs from earlier albums.)
 
The Underfall Yard is a collection of songs which tell stories, some old and some new.  The listener will travel through the tunnels made by the great Victorian engineers in Englandís chalkhills, will hear the mournful laments of coastal villages lost to the sea on storm-filled nights, will meet the grand architect of castles, and hear the tale of the man who saved a great cathedral from collapse by diving under its flooded foundations. We hope you enjoy our new music.

"The Difference Machine" & "English Boy Wonders (remade)" are great albums and the new song sounds just great and the production is lush and dynamic.

Preordered the album already. Hopefully BBT finally gets the recognition they deserve.
