‘The View From Halfway Down’ – the debut solo record from RIDE singer/guitarist Andy Bell signals a brand new chapter for his thirty odd year career. The product of a gradual, four-year process and finished during lockdown, ‘The View From Halfway Down’ will be released 9th October through Sonic Cathedral. The record was made by Andy Bell, engineered by Gem Archer and mastered by Heba Kadry. Back in 2016, Andy was inspired by David Bowie’s death to be more proactive about finishing his songs, more confident about sharing them and to channel all of this into finally making a solo album. He laid down some tracks in former Beady Eye and Oasis bandmate Gem’s studio, but got diverted when Ride’s live reunion blossomed into a full return. A run of two albums, an EP and two world tours later, it would take a pandemic to give Andy the space to complete ‘The View From Halfway Down’.
