While working on my upcoming album, I found that a few songs were disrupting the order, fucking up the flow. They were juvenile delinquents, they refused to fall in line with the others. I had to isolate them on this EP as a little taste of what’s not to come.
To be released Sept 19th in the UK and Sept 20th in the rest of the world
On CD, digital, vinyl and a limited edition picture disc.
I was in a video store in Melbourne last year, looking for something to eat my popcorn to, when I stumbled across the shelf called “Foreign”. In this shelf were all kinds of genres - comedy, drama, thriller, you name it. Mostly good stuff too. Only common denominator was that the movies were from a non english speaking country. I decided that since my music is all comedy, drama, thriller, you name it, mostly good stuff too AND from a non english speaking country, my music should be filed under “Foreign”.
But Itunes have their preconceived conception of what music is and should be. I am only allowed to choose between a number of the most common genres. So please, do me a favour and manually re-label all my tracks “Foreign” when you get them, ok?
