Har Mar Superstar announces album tracklisting and US tour dates
'Dark Touches' album and tour to feature rejected Britney Spears track
'Dark Touches' - Har Mar's first album since 2004s 'The Handler' - will feature a song called 'Tall Boy' which he originally wrote for Britney Spears, but it was rejected.
"That probably was a great choice for them. They should have passed on it," Har Mar said of Britney's decision. "It's a song glamorizing drinking tall cans of beer and fucking tall dudes. She was out of her mind then."
He told Spinner: “C'mon, it would have been a coup for me, but, at the same time, I feel like for everybody's well being it was such better choice for them not to do it."
'Dark Touches' tracklisting will be:
'Turn It Around'
'Gangsters Want To Cuddle Me'
'Don't Ask Don't Tell'
'Turn The Key'
'Dark Touches' is released on October 13, with Har Mar hitting the road in support of his new album with a tour of North America this autumn.
Including two home town shows in Minneapolis, Har Mar will take in shows across America and Canada.
