David has announced the sale of The Church Studios in Crouch Hill, London to influential British producer Paul Epworth.
The studios, a converted church, was bought by David in 2004 from Eurthymics musician Dave Stewart. Subsequently he recorded his three studio albums, Life In Slow Motion, Draw The Line and Foundling there.
Of the sale David said, “I’m delighted to be handing on this wonderful building in the knowledge that it will remain a vital part of London’s ongoing music heritage. I am just putting the finishing touches to what will be the fourth studio album I have recorded at The Church and it remains a very inspiring place. I bought the studios as my own personal recording space and at one stage – with the problems in the wider music business – it looked like the chance of selling it on as a working studio were close to zero. I know Paul has lots of plans and I wish him and the studio the very best.”
