Love Is My Rebellion – the new album
Good morning to you dear reader, and I write with very glad tidings indeed! This glorious summer may well be finally conceding to Autumn but there is still plenty to be excited about. I am midway through a small tour with Robin Ince and Josie Long and so far I have found the folk of Glasgow, Newcastle, Salisbury, Norwich and Reading to be delightful audiences who have been very kind to me indeed. I also simply cannot write without saying an enormous thank you to everyone at Greenbelt 2013 who made the festival an incredible, unforgettable experience. Our set was one of the best and most enjoyable gigs I can ever remember doing, and it was a pleasure to play again with Martyn Joseph at The Rising, who was as wonderful and lovely as ever.
For those of you who have been patiently awaiting news of the new album – a heartfelt thank you to you too and I’m sorry it’s taken so long to come. Recording an album with a full band has been a very different experience to going it (mostly) alone as I have done before, but all the recording is now done and we are wobbling dangerously close to the finish line. Love Is My Rebellion will be the name of my third album, and first with The Benefits Culture band with me. I am really nervous but really excited about unleashing this record on the world; it’s quite different to a lot of what I’ve written before, but I’m really proud of it and I like more than anything I’ve ever done. I hope you all do too.
Once the songs are mastered in the next couple of weeks, you will be able to pre-order the CD from this website. The first 100 copies will be signed by me and will have extra bonus goodies to thank you for being so hot off the mark, and they will hopefully arrive with you within 30 days. Watch this space for a release date in the next week.
London Calling! The Cargo, November 25th
So, we’re bringing out a record and we thought we’d have a jolly good party to celebrate. I am pleased to announce that this morning tickets are going on sale for the Love Is My Rebellion launch party in London. It’s been months since I played London, and the band are always moaning that I never take them anywhere, so we’re going for a big, all-out London launch gig. It would be tremendous if some audience came too!
Love Is My Rebellion launch will be at The Cargo, Shoreditch on November 25th. There will be CDs and exclusive merchandise available on the night and most importantly, we hope it will be good fun for everyone. I’d love it if you could join us to celebrate.
You can get tickets from here:
As always, thank you for your endless enthusiasm and unwavering support. I couldn't do it without you.
