Simon Keenlyside is currently starring in La Traviata at the Royal Opera House in Covent Garden, and has just released his new album ‘Songs of War.’
Tim Lihoreau caught up with the singer to discuss the record. Among other things, the fascinating conversation weaved its way through what the singer thinks about the state of choral singing in the UK, his view on crossover artists and recording his new album. Tim began by asking Simon why he’s decided to release an album about war now.
