Dan Croll announces new album 'Fools'

Following on from the release of his much-loved 2020 LP 'Grand Plan', Dan Croll has now announced his plans for a new studio album, arriving in the coming months.

The new full-length 'Fools' was co-produced by Croll alongside his regular recording partner Matthew E. White, is being previewed by the new lead single 'Slip Away', and is set to be released on the 19th May via Communion Records.

Speaking about the new record, Dan said, "This album came at the end of a turbulent few years for me with the isolation of covid, a break-up, and the homesickness for all that I left behind to move to America. But whilst these were all challenging moments there were some moments of beauty and resilience that allowed me to get through it all. These songs document that tumultuous period that not only I but I'm sure a lot of others went through in what can only be described as a challenging moment in time.

"I decided to go back once more to Richmond, Virginia, to work with Matthew E. White and the incredible musicians there. Each time I've been back I feel we grow and understand each other more and more, and there was a particular ease in capturing these songs that I hope comes through in the record."

While adding about 'Slip Away', "I recently hit my five-year milestone of living in Los Angeles, and 'Slip Away' is about the fatigue and struggle I've felt over the past year. It's frequently had me questioning how realistic it is to carry on living here, and whether draining my savings, living without healthcare, and being so far away from home/family is really worth it. I found myself on occasions fantasising about throwing in the towel and slipping away into a much simpler life, a life possibly even outside of the music industry. Having been in music my entire adult life, a part of me has wondered whether I could ever exist outside of it. A 9-to-5 job has always been something I've seen from the outside looking in, and to me, the structure and steadiness have always been so attractive. 'Slip Away' is about the lure of escaping to a simpler existence."
