Coming soon from state51: Richard James


We’re very excited to announce that Richard James’ album All the New Highways will be released by The state51 Conspiracy label on 25th March.

Richard co-founded legendary alt-rock band Gorky’s Zygotic Mynci. This is Richard’s fourth solo album. With it he’s produced a beguiling collection of alternative, psychedelic-tinged folk; touches of Nick Drake mixing with his turn-of-the-millenium alt-rock roots. It was nominated for the Welsh Music Prize last year.


The beautiful artwork is by artist Andy Fung, who also played drums and contributed backing vocals.

We’re really excited to be releasing another outstanding album by such an accomplished artist on The state51 Conspiracy label. It will be available on CD and for download on 25th March.

In the meantime you can follow Richard on Spotify so you will be the first to hear the album the second it appears. He’s also on Twitter.

Richard’s three previous solo albums are really worth revisiting, too:

The Seven Sleepers Den, 2006


We Went Riding, 2010

Pictures in the Morning, 2011
