Description

Baxter Dury - Prince of Tears

Baxter Dury has announced details of his new album Prince of Tears, to be released on 27th October 2017 via Heavenly Recordings.

The blue edition of 'Prince of Tears' is now sold out. The pressing available is a standard black vinyl edition.

To coincide, Baxter has shared the new video for ‘Miami’, the album’s opening track and portal into his hazy, anti-wonderland. We are guided by ‘Miami’ himself; a foul-mouthed and cocksure character created by Baxter, centred on the delusions that can come with heartbreak. ‘He thinks he’s got swagger, he thinks he’s someone, but he’s not’, explains Baxter.

Prince of Tears was recorded at the end of 2016 at Hoxa Studios, co-produced by Baxter himself & Ash Workman (Metronomy) and mixed by longstanding collaborator Craig Silvey (Arcade Fire, New Order, Florence & the Machine).

Intensely personal, yet brutally open, this is Baxter’s fifth album and his most ambitious and biggest work to date. Whilst retaining the natty charm of his previous works, like his debut Len Parrot’s Memorial Lift or the acclaimed Happy Soup, Baxter this time worked with a full band and orchestra to truly bring the soundscapes of his emotional netherworld to life.

The album features notable guests; including longstanding fan Jason Williamson from Sleaford Mods on the track ‘Almond Milk’ and Rose Elinor Dougall on ‘Porcelain’, as well as long-term collaborator Madelaine Hart providing backing vocals across numerous tracks and illuminating some of the album’s dark corners.

‘The Album is full of little fictional snapshots based on actual experiences’, Baxter says of the ten songs. ‘They’re biographical film soundtracks for an imaginary film about myself, which is fictional. The man singing and speaking it all is unreliable; he can’t see the world properly. Its massively delusional, but because of that it’s also emotionally true’.

Reviews

“Casually unique and an unbounded joy to listen to, it’s the quintessential Baxter Dury
album”
Q Magazine ★★★★

“A career best album’Mojo ★★★★

"Patently, Baxter Dury paid in physical and mental wellbeing to make 'Prince of Tears.' The results are priceless."
 – Record Collector ★★★★

“An original, sensitive album that, underneath a sheen of weirdness, is really about such evergreen concerns as loneliness and companionship.” - The Times ★★★★ - Album of the Week

“The younger Dury has produced an album of savage humour and visceral power, on the surface all wry, occasionally affectionate observation, hard-won wisdom and razor-sharp wit, but beneath as black as night. His dad would love it.”
– The Sunday Times – Album of the Week

“Prince of Tears is alternately very funny, oddly disturbing and genuinely touching, which is a lot of ground to cover in under half an hour. The shadow of Dury’s father still lurks around, but then, anyone who choses to deliver beautifully observed vignettes in a London-accented sprechgesang voice is going to find themselves working in Ian Dury’s shade, regardless of who their dad was. And on Prince of Tears, the songs are so good, the author’s parentage scarcely seems to matter.”
– The Guardian **** Lead Review

“Prince Of Tears is at times moving, occasionally hilarious, and always deeply human.”
- The Quietus

“Baxter comments, ‘it’s massively delusional, but, because of that it’s also emotionally true. This prince is becoming a king.”
– Louder Than War 9/10
