Gordon Lightfoot’s Final Album Will Be Released in July

A posthumous LP by Gordon Lightfoot, titled At Royal Albert Hall, will arrive on July 14.

The double live album was recorded at the prestigious music venue in London, where Lightfoot, who died earlier this month, performed on May 24, 2016. Lightfoot was backed by bassist Rick Haynes, drummer Barry Keane, keyboardist Mike Heffernan and guitarist Carter Lancaster at the show.

According to a press release, the album features the “unembellished live mix of that night’s performance, without edits, overdubs, remixing or resequencing,” and includes several of Lightfoot’s best-known songs, like “Carefree Highway,” “Sundown” and “The Wreck of the Edmund Fitzgerald.”

You can see the LP’s complete track listing below.

The press release also notes that in the weeks leading up to his death, Lightfoot insisted the album be released as soon as possible, “approving the cover artwork and making it clear that no changes were to be made to the recording.”

At Royal Albert Hall is now available for preorder.
