RJ THOMPSON SHARES ‘SUPER 8’ PERFORMED LIVE AT ABBEY ROAD STUDIOS

Musical mastermind RJ Thompson has shared a video of his latest single, ‘Super 8’, performed live at London’s iconic Abbey Road Studios. Filmed in Studio 2 by director Ian West, you can watch RJ and his band – performing with a cinematic string quartet – here. RJ will take his live set-up across the UK on a nine-date headline tour this September. Venues and dates below, tickets available here

‘Super 8’ Live at Abbey Road follows the release of the track’s official music video, a vibrant visual shot on an original Super 8 camera in Los Angeles, California – watch here. ‘Super 8’ is the latest single taken from RJ’s forthcoming full-length Yearbook, set for release 2nd September 2022.

The follow up to last month’s ‘Your Money Or Your Life’ – which launched RJ’s brand new era and his first new music since 2020’s sophomore album Lifeline – ‘Super 8’ is another masterful piece of songwriting from the musician who, true to his artistry, combines a plethora of differing sonics to unpack in a singular record. ‘Super 8’ is the second track to be performed Live at Abbey Road – watch the live performance of ‘Your Money Or Your Life’ here

Dubbed ‘Synth Springsteen’ by the UK media and influenced by the likes of Beck, Brandon Flowers and Bleachers, RJ Thompson’s artistry merges brilliant storytelling with a signature nostalgic sound. Starting his journey in the backstreet pubs and clubs of his native North-East, having taken up the drums aged six and self-taught guitar and piano later on, RJ has gone on to perform all over Europe, including as support for musical legend Jools Holland on multiple tours, performing at venues including the Royal Albert Hall.
