I recently completed my third album, which has just been mastered by the fine guys at Wired in South London. So why is it called ‘Solitude’?
I bought a 1970s copy of the classic novel ‘One Hundred Years of Solitude’ by Gabriel Garcia Marquez whislt strolling through the San Telmo district of Buenos Aires, just before Christmas. Staring at the cover, I realised that ‘Solitude’ would be an apt title for the new record, given that I created it entirely on my own. Making this record has been a solitary experience as, for the first time, I didn’t collaborate with vocalists and didn’t play demo tracks to anyone.
Furthermore, London is starting to feel like a manic place to live. I am constantly daydreaming about living somewhere totally isolated in the countryside or on a clifftop – a life of solitude. No noise, no distractions…maybe one day.
The album will be released in May and I’ll update you all on release details when confirmed.
