"... a musically fabulous and lyrically compelling album."
- The Guardian

As the title indicates, this album brings together various members of the musical Thompson family: Teddy Thompson, his acclaimed folk rocker parents Richard and Linda, brother Jack, younger sister Kami, her husband James and nephew Zak Hobbs, collectively dubbed Thompson. This collaborative album of original songs captures the warmth, intelligence and humour of this supremely talented family as they record together for the very first time. The family members all wrote and recorded their songs where they live and sent them in; once done, the family met up for four days of studio time in London and New York City where the tracks were recorded with Teddy at the helm. The recordings feature abundant musical cross-pollination from all the performers as well as shared backing vocals.

"Growing up you are formed by your parents and then when you get to be 18 or 19 and you get out of the house, you want to distance yourself from your parents. That’s natural. That was the case for me musically. I wanted to get away from them. Then you realize you can’t because that’s who you are. So you come round again."

What is High-Resolution Audio?

High-resolution audio offers the highest-fidelity available, far surpassing the sound quality of traditional CDs. When you listen to music on a CD or tracks purchased via consumer services such as iTunes, you are hearing a low-resolution version of what was actually recorded and mastered in the studio. ProStudioMasters offers the original studio masters — exactly as the artist, producers and sound engineers mastered them — for download, directly to you.

What do I need for playback?

You may need additional software / hardware to take full advantage of the higher 24-bit high-res audio formats, but any music lover that has heard 16-bit vs 24-bit will tell you it's worth it!
