King Creosote has shared a double-A side single, his first new music since 2016.
Available on 7” from November 27th, the first track Susie Mullen introduces synths and drums to Kenny Anderson’s Creosote sound, to find its inspiration ‘you need only squeeze the belly of a souvenir camel toy from Egypt to unleash a rather urgent and tinny sounding nursery rhyme in Arabic, jam along in the key of Bb’.
“The lyrics reference a song by Billy Pilgrim RIP from Fence Sampler #3 in which Walter de la Mare recounts a lightning strike on a large old tree. Nota bene,” he continues on the second, Walter De La Nightmare.
“I am fully aware that ‘lymph nodes’ and ‘emphatic’ do not conflate to ‘node lymphatic’, but it sounds good to my ear, and it provides a much-needed rhyme. Both Susie and Walter have taken over two decades to make their pilgrimage from Egypt to Ullapool.”
