HRH Prog 13 headliners Big Big Train, have unveiled the first track as part of their new music streaming series Stay Tuned titled The Connection Plan. A brand new song that doesn’t feature on the band’s recently released album Common Ground.

Bassist Greg Spawton explains “In the lead-up to our tours in 2022, we wanted to share a series of single streaming releases, the ‘Stay Tuned’ streaming series will feature newly recorded compositions, we hope listeners will enjoy them“.

Common Ground has been the band’s most successful release, reaching No. 31 in the UK album charts and following with a tour planned for 2022, ahead of their HRH Prog appearance!


For the Common Ground tour, which will be their most extensive to date and which will culminate in the UK with a show at the prestigious London Palladium, Greg Spawton (bass), David Longdon (lead vocals, flute), Nick D’Virgilio (drums, vocals) and Rikard Sjöblom (guitars, keyboards, vocals) will be joined by Carly Bryant (keyboards, guitars, vocals), who contributes vocals to ‘Common Ground’, Dave Foster (guitars), who plays on two tracks on the new album, Clare Lindley (violin, vocals) and by a five-piece brass ensemble.
