And so to the new year. New ideas, new schemes, new shows and with a fair wind some new songs.
And just like that, 2022 is almost at a close.
This has been some year…
My new album ‘For Everything Under The Sun’ was released, and I want to personally thank every one of you who has bought a copy so far.
The year delivered so much, but I have to say receiving a personal call from Evan Dando inviting me to open for The Lemonheads as they toured the iconic ‘Shame About Ray’ across the UK, was nothing short of surreal.
Not only did I have the pleasure of playing some great stages (including the London Roundhouse) but I was able to witness, firsthand, the extraordinary talent, which Evan seems to breathe, take to the stage. I watched in awe as he both succeeded and struggled in pursuit of his art. Moments of triumph in the early shows, ending with moments of pain.
A true artist who lives his music.
I guess that’s how the truth is. As harsh as kerosene, sometimes, and not always easy to be around. It was, ultimately, a joy and something I will never forget.
Unbelievably, in the same month, I had the pleasure of opening for the wonderful Marc Almond and his band of wizards on his UK tour. Starting with a special Sunday night at The London Palladium. Throughout the tour, I was made to feel part of the gang by band and crew. Marc’s repertoire of songs draws from many different places, and he and the band moved through each song with skill, dynamism, and fluidity, like a well-oiled machine. Marc had the grace to invite me up on stage to sing with him every night, and I had the opportunity to play to his audience in beautiful theatres across the country. Meeting members of that audience at the merch stand at every show.
I was surprised and also humbled at how attentive they were, considering I was unknown to them just 30 minutes previously. It’s probably true to say that these shows did more than anything previously to convince me that I have the chops to get the job done.
A lot of miles covered, accompanied by plenty of tunes: powered by way too many Greggs cheese and bean bakes.
From the great North West cities of Liverpool & Manchester to the raucous, joyous Glaswegian crowd and concluding at the magnificent Birmingham Symphony Hall, it was a special couple of weeks. To be able to sing on these stages with my brother Adam and sister Teresa provided eternal snapshots that are now planted and will live, forever, in my memory.
Throughout the year I played various festival stages with my band The Crown Electric, starting at the inaugural Lost Causes Festival in February, and then into summer. These included Glastonbury, Americana Fest, Nibley, Nozstock, Lakefest, and concluding with Shiiiine On in November. As a live band, we faced certain challenges trying to recreate the new album: The songs are so layered and nuanced: produced by the supremely talented Michael Smith.
The challenges were those of presenting the songs without much deeper pockets for band retainers and multiple musicians on stage to play every instrument.
We reworked certain songs in the rehearsal room, and when combined with songs from my previous records, we managed to find a live identity that produced the same power as we had intended, albeit with more stripped back raw energy. I’m grateful to every musician who joined me on stage in The Crown Electric this year; my brother Adam LipinskiGraham J NichollsStu EnglefieldJon Whitfield & Mike Sutton. For giving up their time for little, and sometimes no money, yet still dedicating themselves to the songs and performances.
A special mention to my wife Saph for her support and understanding over the many days and nights spent away and for having to listen to me sing and play pretty much every day. Incredibly she’s not sick of my music yet.
At least I don’t think she is!
Many milestones achieved this year and also many lessons learned. My gratitude to partner in grime, Iain Robertson.
Many hours spent together – making plans, plotting the months ahead, long, late motorway miles discussing all things music (and the Universe in general) Always seeking some sense of truth as to where our part might be best played.
A thank you also to Mi Casa Music for making the release of ‘For Everything Under The Sun’ a reality.
To top off the year, I was also humbled to be nominated for the Best Male Artist of the year by Radio Wigwam. A major indie radio station that has supported my new record all year.
Some exciting plans and shows already in place for the coming months.
Lost Causes Festival will be taking place once again on Saturday 25th February – tickets & info available here:
A double bill show with my good friend, fellow troubadour and travelling salesman Matt Owens Music at The Chapel Arts in Bath on Thursday 27th April. Tickets:
I’ll be out on the road on a UK record store tour and looking forward to seeing some familiar faces up and down the country – full details to be announced soon.
To the fans that have followed me over the last few years, and to all the new faces who have been introduced over the last 12 months – to everyone who has bought my new record, a ticket for a show or a t-shirt; your support is vital and every single one of you is part of this journey.
Wishing you all love, peace, happiness and rock n roll for the year ahead.
See you all on the other side x


What a beautiful couple of weeks it’s been!
Starting at the London Palladium, through Liverpool, Manchester, Buxton, York, Glasgow, Bexhill, Cambridge and ending at Birmingham’s stunning Symphony Hall.
A personal highlight was being able to share stages with my brother Adam Lipinski and Graham Nicholls, firstly at the London Palladium, then, again, in Birmingham, plus the evening in Manchester when my sister joined me on stage. Teresa has the best voice of the family, and she proved it…
A thank you to everyone who got to their seats early to catch my set. Testament to Marc’s fan base that we played to near on full houses every night. That isn’t the norm with a support slot.
It was great to meet so many of you at the merch stands after my set: knowing that many of you were turning on to my music for the first time, and thanks to so many for buying CD’s, Vinyl and T.Shirts.
That income keeps me afloat.
Sincere thanks to Marc Almond & Neal X for not only inviting me to open for the tour, but for taking the time to listen.
For someone like Marc to share his stages in support of an ‘up & coming’ artist is humbling and I’m very grateful for his generosity of spirit.
Getting up on stage to join the band for the encores was a blast, as we hammered out ‘Tainted Love’, ‘Say Hello (Wave Goodbye’) and shared harmony on ‘John, I’m only Dancing.’
Travelling round the country with this group of incredible musicians alongside Marc’s tireless crew, playing these iconic venues in front of the warmest of audiences, has been a joy.
Next up, we roll into Shiiine On Festival on Sunday 13th November, where I get to put my band ‘The Crown Electric’ back into the spotlight.
See you by the seaside, and if you’re lucky enough to hold a ticket for this incredible festival, come and say hello. We’re on the centre stage at 1pm.
Life’s a gas.


‘Closing Time’, taken from Alex’s new record ‘For Everything Under The Sun’ will be released next FRIDAY 21ST OCTOBER on Mi Casa Music.


This summer brought plenty of things, including the weather (a little too hot), and a whole lot of fun playing festival stages across the UK with my band, The Crown Electric, which began at Glastonbury and ended with Lakefest in late August. It was great to see so many new and familiar faces come to see us play.

Last week I got a call from Evan Dando inviting me to open for The Lemonheads in Bristol and on the back of that gig the invitation to open again at the London Roundhouse. I knew Evan had listened to my songs and has gone ‘on record’ with some kind words about my writing but it was still surreal to hear his voice on the end of the phone with the very kind invitation. Thank you Evan, it meant a lot, and it means a lot.

To play the Roundhouse was a special moment. I’ve seen some of the greats on that stage over the years – Paul McCartney, Brian Wilson, Ray Davies.. so to finally play here was some feeling. Evan is a gentleman and a genuine artist and to watch him and the band blow the roof off was a thing of joy. The offer to open for the band has continued and I’m looking forward to playing with them again next week at Chalk in Brighton (10th Oct) & 1865 in Southampton (12th Oct).

The 16th October kicks off Marc Almond’s UK Tour, and I’ll be opening for Marc at every show, starting with the London Palladium and ending at Birmingham Symphony Hall. Again, my sincere gratitude goes out to Marc and Marc’s musical director Neal X, who caught one of my gigs a few months back and invited me to open for the whole tour.

On the new album front we finally have physical! The CDs have arrived with the pre-orders all sent out. The vinyl will hopefully not be too far around the corner and I want to thank everyone who’s pre-ordered the record for their patience. It’s a stunning double gatefold and it really will be worth the wait.

Sunday 13th November will be our final festival appearance of 2022 as The Crown Electric roll in to play Shiiine On at Butlins in Minehead. We had a great time playing there last year, and very much looking forward to returning on a bigger stage and attempting to cure those Sunday hangovers..

And suddenly it’s December and the sounds of sleigh bells ringing through every supermarket and high street retailer’s tinny speakers….how did we get here so fast?!

Looking forward to seeing you all on the road somewhere very soon x


Alex will be playing a number of live shows this year, starting with Glastonbury Festival on 22nd June.

More dates for 2022 to be confirmed soon..


Alex Lipinski New Album

My new record ‘For Everything Under The Sun’ is out today and it gives me great pleasure to finally be able to share it with you all.

Two years in the making, and it began with acoustic demos. I was waking up in the middle of the night to record a melody or chord progression into my phone for fear of missing out on a potential gift passing into my psyche, from whichever mysterious place in the universe these things originate.

Honing those ideas and then creating music in a room with like-minded people who share the same passions.

It ended with a collection of songs and recordings I feel are my strongest yet.

Over the coming days and weeks I may decide to share some memories of making this record. Not to bore you to tears about which EQ was used or what type of guitar strings I used (although some would find it interesting and you know who you are). But to simply share the joy we had creating it.

Something Jeff Tweedy said which really resonated – “each song and each act of creativity is an act of defiance in a world that often feels determined to destroy itself. We have a choice – to be on the side of creation, or surrender to the powers that destroy”.

To create something that until that very moment didn’t exist.

Music. Art. Creativity. Family. Community.

Because that’s why we’re all here right??!

For Everything Under The Sun.

A collection of memories, ideas, dreams and visions.

Thank you in advance, for you continued support. For every vinyl, CD, download, ticket and t-shirt bought is a step towards the next album/tour/chapter.

I hope you enjoy listening as much as we enjoyed making it.

And so it begins.

Hear it creeping through the grapevine…


Where else but the spiritual home of Bruce Springsteen, to drop a live set, on the very day we launch my new album, a collection of toe tappers entitled: ‘For Everything Under The Sun’.
So: I’ll be setting up at Cheltenham’s iconic indie record store, Badlands Records, this Friday at 3pm, to deliver a raw, stripped-back, 45 minutes performance. And I sincerely hope that, school day, or not, you will come along and join me.
Starting to get busy, now:
Today we’re releasing the third single ‘Coyote’ into the wild; a song I wrote in the blurred and bloodied aftermath of a night in LA with Oasis legend, Bonehead (get well soon, my friend).
Badlands, as previously mentioned, Friday: then a free homecoming gig at Weston Super Mare’s Loves on May 12th (because ‘we dance with them that brung us’) before I head across to Berlin and take the stage at Passionskirche, in support of Marc Almond.
Got live, if you want it…
Coyote is out now on all major digital platforms.
Friday 6th May – Badlands- Cheltenham
Thursday 12th May – Loves – Weston-Super-Mare
Monday 16th May – Passionskirche – Berlin (w/ Marc Almond)
Tuesday 17th May – Passionskirche – Berlin (w/ Marc Almond)



Alex Lipinski New Album

I’m excited to announce the release of a new album. I think that’s the right word, and I think it describes how I feel. Trouble with ‘excited’ is that it has become one of those words that we chuck at everything, and in so doing, we make it meaningless. 

But I’ve walked around this a little, and yes, it’s the right word.

This album was recorded between December 2020 and July 2021 in London and in Oxfordshire. 

Some of these songs were written during lockdown of 2020, a time during which – like all of us, I imagine – I was taking stock and assessing who, and where I was as a person. But also, as an artist. I spent many hours, days and weeks thinking about what direction I wanted to take the new songs. 

In the end, I realised that they had taken me. The past informs the present, but it also leans heavy against it. And the present bruises easily. Not my words. But when the work was done, I understood the truth of them.

We’ve done it, and I believe we’ve done it right. This is the most complete, and joined-up collection of music that I’ve ever released. That’s what excites me. And I’m going to honour that. The vinyl is coming out as a stunning 2 x LP gatefold with photography from the supremely talented Ruari Meehan.

The CD is a little clone of the vinyl, and both have been manufactured without a shred of plastic. 

I was lucky enough to work with good friends. Not least of whom is producer Michael Smith. For 10 years we had talked about making an album together: But it wasn’t until late 2020 that our paths were able to cross, professionally, and this collaboration was made possible.

Demos went across to Michael. We cross-referenced how I wanted the record to sound, and incredibly, we immediately understood where this had to go. By then dipping our toes into the past, whilst looking firmly into the future, the soundscape we both imagined in our heads came to pass. 

A huge thank you to my band – Adam Lipinski, Graham Nicholls and Jon Whitfield. Over the course of many long, sweat-soaked studio sessions: recording and then fine tuning, this record almost ambushed us. As I said, the songs took me. Finally, it sprang into life, and out of the speakers it breathed, whispered, then shouted into the long nights of a cosy RYP studio space, in London. 

We had it, but we didn’t, until David “Seabass” Geoghegan popped by and added his triumphant trumpet parts one morning. It was done.

A huge thank you to Mi Casa Music. For starting a record label in the most uncertain of times for music and the arts, purely on the basis of hearing these songs. Constructing the platform that will allow them to be heard. I am particularly grateful to label A&R, Iain Robertson, who has been hands on in every aspect from the outset. 

Thank you, also, to Chris Carr. Hooked me up with Michael and he has championed me all the way, since a fateful meeting, years back, at Soho’s legendary, lost, 12-Bar Club. 

Finally, to Michael Smith; Who’s passion and dedication to making great records is completely inspiring. His collaboration has been a joy from start to finish.

A lot of hard work has gone into the making of this music. I will not pretend that we didn’t have a lot of fun, too.

So: I’m properly, truly, and genuinely excited; to announce that ‘For Everything Under the Sun’ will be released: 6th May 2022. Through, of course, Mi Casa Music. Available to pre-order right now on Vinyl & CD at Anyone who pre-orders via iTunes will instantly receive ‘The Great Deprived’ exclusively ahead of release.
