Next Tuesday 22nd October sees the release of my self titled album on lovely Limited Edition Heavyweight Vinyl. Again featuring the brilliant photography of Matthias Heiderich which looks gorgeous printed 12” x 12”. Plus I have printed all the lyrics on the inner sleeve.
All albums come with download codes and is available only through Bandcamp and won’t appear on any other digital site, iTunes or spotify etc.
The album was written and recorded in 7 weeks, which is something I had never done before. I didn’t know how it was going to turn out. People around me at that time knew I had been going through a very difficult year.The Label also were expecting a introspective acoustic album. What I emerged with 7 weeks later was my own slice of Dream Pop.
The album does deal with things I had been going through that year, but also retreats into the world of pure escapism via pop songs, imaginary kids TV soundtracks or whatever sample, sound or melody inspired me to make that day in the studio.
I would like to thank Nick Crofts my best friend for lending me the keys to his studio, and for the two amazing remixes he produced to accompany the album. And also to Rory Mansfield who first suggested making a solo record, giving me encouragement and visited during the making of the record to make sure I wasn’t going insane.
I hope people enjoy it
