Andy Burrows and Matt Haig will be live in-store at Rough Trade East to perform tracks from new album 'Reasons To Stay Alive', whilst Burrows plays solo acoustic shows at Rough Trade Bristol and Rough Trade Nottingham.

Musician and songwriter Andy Burrows and number one, bestselling author Matt Haig release their album collaboration, Reasons To Stay Alive on Fiction Records. The pair, whose friendship blossomed after they “met” on Twitter, have spent the past year passing ideas back and forth to create a stunning collection of songs loosely inspired by Haig’s much loved books, including Reasons to Stay Alive and How to Stop Time, with words by Haig and music by Burrows. Reasons to Stay Alive, its title boldly acknowledging the themes and influence of Haig’s autobiographical book, is a unique project: a rich, colourful suite of gutsy, classic songwriting. Full of shades of Elton John, Supertramp and Queen, and with an emotional undercurrent that could not be more relevant in today’s world. Together the pair spin love stories, travel space and time, celebrate soul-mates and travel unflinchingly into the tenderer recesses of the mind.
