Sandi Thom Releases New Album Flesh and Blood on August 14th

Follow-up To Internationally Acclaimed Debut Merchants and Thieves

Platinum selling Scottish singer-songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Sandi Thom is pleased to confirm the August 14th release of her fourth studio album, Flesh and Blood.

The first single, "The Sun Comes Crashing Down," is available as a free download at her official website.

Sandi is best known for her 2006 No.1 hit single, "I Wish I Was a Punk Rocker (With Flowers In My Hair)," which topped the charts in the UK, Australia, Germany, and Ireland, to name a few. She's sold 2 million records worldwide, and has received rave reviews from the likes of BBC, The Guardian, and Mojo.

Flesh and Blood is Sandi's second album released solely by her independent label Guardian Angels Records, and is the follow-up to 2010's critically acclaimed Merchants and Thieves.

The album was produced by the Black Crowes' Rich Robinson and was recorded at 16 Tons Studio in Nashville, Tennessee.

It features an all-star ensemble, including Black Crowes drummer Steve Gorman and guitarist Audley Freed (who's also worked with Dixie Chicks, Train, Jakob Dylan, and others). It also features special guest appearances from singer-songwriter Buffy Sainte-Marie and the legendary saxophonist and Rolling Stones collaborator Bobby Keys.

Sandi feels that Flesh and Blood is her coming of age album.

"All I ever want to do is write songs that connect with people," says Sandi. "With this album I've finally found a place where I can make the very best music I can achieve. The people that only know me from Punk Rocker won't recognize me on this album."

The intriguingly titled "I Love You Like a Lunatic" is based on her life-changing love affair with superstar blues guitarist Joe Bonamassa. The couple has been together three years now, living and loving on and off the road.

"My life just turned crazy," says Sandi. "Yet that's what everybody wants, that insane kind of love that utterly consumes you."
