Welsh musical legend John Cale has announced a return to the venue that has been the location for some of his most special recent works.
The former Velvet Underground man will play at Cardiff's Coal Exchange on 7 October in support of his as-yet-untitled new album, out on Domino.
The Coal Exchange was the location for the filming of the film Beautiful Mistake in 2000, in which Cale contributed with many of Wales' best young musicians of the time, while in 2009 he performed the whole of his classic album Paris 1919 at the venue.
Having signed with the well-known indie label Domino last year, Cale recently released a limited edition remix 12â³, pressed on white vinyl with packaging designed by Satomi. Three tracks from Cale's Extra Playful EP were remixed by Maria Minerva, Actress and Alva Noto, for Extra Playful: Transitions, a release for Record Store Day 2012.
