Badly Drawn Boy has released some new music ahead of his appearance at the London Roundhouse as part of the venue’s In The Round series tomorrow.
Is This A Dream? is Damon Gough’s first offering in seven years, while it’s not far off a decade since his last studio full length It’s What I’m Thinking Pt.1 – Photographing Snowflakes; “Churning out albums that just don’t quite feel like home, it takes no genius to see that his Mercury Music Prize success over a decade ago wound up as a blessing and a curse in equal measure,”our review of the album reads.
“All of that, however, seems set to change with his latest release; It’s What I’m Thinking Pt 1: Photographing Snowflakes – an album sent straight from his soul, tackling the inevitable frailties that come with being human: love, loss, inadequacy, loneliness and the eternal search for salvation. It seems as though Mr. Gough has finally clambered back upon his wayward horse and created something fresh, original, and best of all, something beautiful.”
