After releasing his debut single 'London Bridge' in the summer, Blur drummer Dave Rowntree has now announced his plans for a new studio album, arriving early next year.
The new full-length 'Radio Songs' was produced by Leo Abrahams (Brian Eno, Wild Beasts, Ghostpoet), is being previewed by the new lead track 'Devil's Island', and is set to be released on the 20th January via Cooking Vinyl.
Speaking about the new offering, he said, "I grew up in the UK in the 1970s and while there were definitely good points about the decade, I also remember how toxic it could be. The country was deeply divided, and racism and misogyny were the norm. The economy was a basket case, and at one point we had to be bailed out by the IMF [International Monetary Fund]. However, listening to some people, you'd think it was a golden age to which we should yearn to return.
“This song is a note to self, to remind me how far we've come in forty years."
