There are snippets of "Houston we have a problem" and "Going home" from May 2019 as well.

https://soundcloud.com/oldvictheatre/houston-from-local-hero-30-sec

https://soundcloud.com/oldvictheatre/going-home-main-theme-from

First snippet is just Every Heart In The Room.

Is this the usual MK band we're hearing (maybe minus the US folks)? The drummer sounds like Ianto?

MK plays all guitars. Guy the synths, the Macs play whistle and fiddle, Ianto plays drums and Evan Vernal (or something like that) plays bass. Plus other name I can remember on piano, and the actor who plays McIntyre singing.
You might get lucky, now and then

Wow what a wonderful song! And some great classic MK guitar work!
I would love to hear MK doing the vocal himself though.

I think that one of the most beautiful songs from the musical is "Houston we have a problem", I hope the MK band recorded all the songs and hear MK playing wonderful guitar on such a beautiful song...

"rocks and water" is another favorite, together with "game over".

The musical has some very classy MK on it. It's a pity some fans won't know about them simply because they don't like musicals. I'm not a musical fan either but this is one with MK songs on it, and most of them are beautiful.

One of my favourites is "I Wonder If I Can Go Home Again", but there are so many lovely songs.   I hope we will hear more of these from MK and the band and, eventually,  a cast recording too.

That's also beautiful, and it has two different versio9on the play, sung by different characters.

Only Rocks and Water is a very nice MK song ruined to me by the guy who signs it. I don’t know but the way he sings it just doesn’t feel right. If sung by Mark it would be fantastic
...Well, he's a big star now but I've been a fan of his for years. The way he sings and plays guitar still bring me to tears...

You said that because you didn't see the musical.

It makes total sense that is sung by the actor.

I agree.  It makes you think about Mark singing his other songs: sometimes he is taking on acting roles in a manner of speaking, such as in STP where he plays a character.  Other times he is just narrating or playing himself.  I suppose if he was appearing in the show then he would sing it, however that wasn't happening!  :lol

On a different note, I actually preferred Stella singing this.  Maybe this was pre-Edinburgh recording, but the female vocal was nicer for me.  The actress sang with more passion too.

Thanks so much for the share of this lovely song!

Captures for me something of the essence of why I love mks music.

Thanks again, very much cheered me up in these dark times.

Guy said MK and him, and the musical team were working on changing some things, maybe that song and the character who sings it was one of those...

Guy said that there is not a cast recording as yet so I don't know what to think about the song they shared to us... Since it's sung by one of the sct9, it would be weird being a demo...

Probably just referring to all of the songs with the entire cast rather than just one song with one cast member.
