SSR Staff And Students Assist With The Orchids' New Album
The Orchids' new album Beatitude #9 is released today and we are delighted to have helped with the production and marketing of the album.

SSR academic director Ian Carmichael has worked with the cult Scottish band since their very early days and continued the relationship by producing this latest album, recording vocals and undertaking the final mix of the tracks here in the SSR studios.

Our BSc (Hons) Music Business & Creative Industries students were also involved in marketing and PR for the album under guidance from tutor Jo Hilditch, and SSR tutor Stuart Avery was in charge of mastering the album, so it has been a real collaborative effort.

Josh Woods from local production company FeaturePhonicMedia, who have also worked with SSR in the past documenting a series of session videos in our studios, has produced the video for the album's first single Hey! Sometimes! that you can watch below. So far the track is Single Of The Week at L’Attimo Fuggente, and Piccadilly Records in Manchester were the first to review the album.

You can read more about the album and Ian's work over on his blog -

The album is released on the Spanish Acuarela label, and is available on their website, at all decent record shops including Piccadilly Records, and on iTunes.
