British Army Band Signs £1million Record Deal

British Army regiments, “The Royal Scots Dragoon Guards” have signed a record deal with Universal records for £1,000,000.

The Pipe and Drum sections have made a series of recordings in between deployments, performing the likes of Wings “Mull of Kintyre” and “Sailing” most famous for its cover by Rod Stewart. They are set to release an album of traditional military songs and other more contemporary tracks through the world’s largest record company.

“The pipes are an integral part of our regiment, and we take huge pride in our Music” spoke Pipe Major Derek Potter “We've even had to impose a curfew on pipes practice, as the rehearsals disturb the non-pipers among us. We're very excited to be able to share our music with the world.”

The Album is to be produced by Jon Cohen, who has worked with The Sugababes and The Backstreet boys says reports. Dickon Stainer, managing director of Universal Classics and Jazz has announced that the release was “a once in a life time album.”
