The View‘s frontman Kyle Falconer has confirmed the details of his debut solo album.

No Thank You will be released on July 27th, following up his first single Poor Me which was unveiled last month and inspired by the Alcoholics Anonymous mantra ‘poor me, poor me, pour me another drink’. “Every day you get triggers and traumas stuck in your head, and you’re hearing all of these horrible stories,” he said.

“You want to hear it, but at the same time you’re thinking, ‘I’m here to help myself but I’ve got to listen to everyone else’s story.’ It’s quite hard to hear, and I was thinking that a lot of these people were worse off than me.”

Of the album’s title, Falconer has revealed it was solidified in his mind during a trip to Phuket to visit Liam Gallagher:

“Liam said, ‘If you don’t use it, I’m going to use it for my next album’. It makes a lot of sense: no thanks to a band, no thanks to anyone. I recorded it all myself so no need to thank anyone, just thank me.”
