BLACK STAR RIDERS frontman Ricky Warwick is set to release his two solo albums, 'When Patsy Cline Was Crazy (And Guy Mitchell Sang The Blues)' and 'Hearts On Trees', as a double CD on 26th February 2016 via Nuclear Blast Entertainment. With the release just a few weeks away, we're premiering the next single from the electric album over on Planet Rock Radio's website. Listen to the catchy anthem 'Celebrating Sinking', below:

Ricky commented on the track: "Andy Cairns from THERAPY? has been one of my closest friends for many years and we have shared some great adventures. We are also both Belfast lads. We had been planning to write a song together for years and this album was the catalyst for that. Andy sent me the title and the chorus and I built the rest of the song around. 'Celebrating Sinking' is about keeping your feet on the ground and not forgetting your roots!"

The forthcoming release boasts an array of acclaimed musicians with guests including; Joe Elliot (DEF LEPPARD), Damon Johnson (THIN LIZZY/BLACK STAR RIDERS), Andy Cairns (THERAPY?), Billy Morrison (BILLY IDOL), Nathan Connolly (SNOW PATROL), Ginger Wildheart, Jake Burns (STIFF LITTLE FINGERS), Richard Fortus (GUNS 'N ROSES/THE DEAD DAISIES) and Mark Thwaite (THE MISSION, PETER MURPHY).

The artwork for the double albums reflects the tone of each - When Patsy Cline Was Crazy… showcases the electric rock and roll side of Ricky, whilst »Hearts On Trees« veers more towards tender stripped-back songwriting, influenced by both Americana and, more importantly, Ricky's Northern Irish roots.

Ricky explains: "Hearts On Trees and When Patsy Cline Was Crazy (And Guy Mitchell Sang The Blues) were written by myself and my good friend Sam Robinson, both albums depict our experiences of growing up and coming from the Greater East Belfast area, not only experiences that have happened to us but historical references and stories that have been told to us by friends and family... in saying that both albums translate those experiences on to a global scale that hopefully anyone geographically can relate to."
