Nitin Sawhney | OneZero | Live From Metropolis Studios
An astonishing 35 years after the last live, direct to vinyl mainstream recording, Nitin Sawhney rises to the challenge with his brand new past, present and future unplugged album OneZero. This retrospective was cut live to vinyl with his phenomenal band and special guest Joss Stone, featuring four brand new tracks. Uncompromised by the safety net of post-production editing, multi-tracking or modern sound correction techniques, Sawhney – boldly daring to go where no major artist has gone since 1978 – recorded seventeen songs from his back catalogue and forthcoming album, as old school as it gets, direct to disc before a live audience at Metropolis Studios on April 6th 2013.
Entitled OneZero to commemorate nine studio albums previous, this extremely limited edition of 1000 deluxe vinyl boxsets was released by Metropolis Recordings on Monday 24th June. OneZero features the entire performance across five 180 gram Vinyl LPs (cut live simultaneously with Nitin’s performance), and the deluxe boxset also features a CD version of the recordings, exclusive bonus session material across a further CD and on vinyl, a deluxe 24-page booklet featuring stunning artwork from renowned artist Paul Benney and a short film on DVD about the making of OneZero, along with three full-length performances from the session.
