PREMIERE: Francis Macdonald Releases New Single “Sarcophagus”

Pic by Charlie Frances

Today we bring you the beautifully arranged chamber music composed, arranged and produced by Scottish, BAFTA-nominated composer/songwriter and Teenage Fanclub drummer Francis Macdonald. ‘Sarcophagus’ is a tranquil and relaxing piece with blissfully arranged strings and an emotive, cinematic lift. A perfect introduction to this captivating project and we eagerly await the full album, out 26th January next year.

The ‘Hamilton Mausoleum Suite’ music was inspired by – and the album was recorded in – the historic Hamilton Mausoleum that stands on the edge of Strathclyde Park in Lanarkshire, a few miles from the city of Glasgow. The Mausoleum has one of the longest echoes of any man-made building in the world and was constructed in the 1850s for Alexander The 10th Duke of Hamilton. For a time, the duke’s remains were interred in an Egyptian sarcophagus on a plinth within the building. The mausoleum, 37 metres tall, now stands empty.
