The record focuses on some of the most obscure material in his catalogue and includes tracks that have never previously been released, along with some that have only been heard as cover versions in the past.
Thompson previously said of his acoustic recordings series, which began in 2014: “I was just making the kind of record that’s supposed to be for new listeners. I envisaged this being something that goes on the merchandise table at the concerts, for people coming to the show for the first time.
“I wasn’t expecting it to be much more than that but the record label and my management really liked it, so it seems to have taken on a life of its own. It’s representative of the sort of thing I do at a solo show. I didn’t have anything like it.”
