The Coldest Place on Earth
David McAlmont & Michael Nyman present "The Coldest Place on Earth" on March 15th.
Michael Nyman and David McAlmont - Britain's finest and most prolific classical composer together with one of the most recognizable and admired vocalists to have emerged in the UK in the last fifteen years will be releasing their new single The Coldest Place on Earth on March 15th.
This brand new song, which is not featured on the duo's critically acclaimed album The Glare, will be made available via digital download only together with City Of Turin, a song taken from The Glare.
The Coldest Place On Earth itself matches Nyman's music (The Heart Asks For Pleasure First) to McAlmont's extraordinary lyrics inspired by a story David read in a newspaper.

The idea of a coldest place on earth felt appropriate to the music and a new song was born. Its' appropriateness is remarkable because Michael's music was inspired by a piece about winter in the coldest, remotest part of Scotland.
(David McAlmont, 2010)
