Daryl Hall / Before After

Two-CD retrospective

Daryl Hall will release a new retrospective of solo work in April called Before After.

Drawing from 35 years of recordings, Before After offers highlights from Daryl Hall’s five studio albums (Sacred Songs (1980) Three Hearts in the Happy Ending Machine (1986), Soul Alone (1993), Can’t Stop Dreaming (1996) and Laughing Down Crying (2011). ‘Dreamtime’ from his second album is of course the notable big solo hit.

‘Can We Still Be Friends?’ Live From Daryl’s House

Sitting alongside the studio recordings in Before After are a significant number of live performances from Hall’s Live From Daryl’s House online music programme, which celebrates its 18th year in 2022. These include exciting collaborations such as ‘Here Comes The Rain Again’ with Dave Stewart and ‘Can We Still Be Friends?’ with Todd Rundgren.

In total, Before After contains 30 tracks and these were selected and sequenced by Daryl Hall. This new compilation will be released on 1 April 2022, via Sony’s Legacy Recordings. There’s no vinyl version.
