PEARL’S A SINGLE

The acclaimed solo artist releases a taster from his much-anticipated LP...

Badly Drawn Boy, real name DAMON GOUGH, will release ‘Another Pearl’ as his new single on Twisted Nerve through XL Recordings on June 5.

It is the second track to be lifted from his eagerly-anticipated debut album ‘The Hour Of Bewilderbeast’, released on June 26, following last year’s ‘Once Around The Block’ EP. As previously reported on nme.com, Gough’s album features two tracks ‘Pissing In The Wind’ and ‘Dissillusion’, written in collaboration with Doves.

The single features mixes by Broadcast and Fridge and is backed by two tracks not on the album, ‘Distant Town’ and ‘Chaos Theory’.

Gough will play Glastonbury on June 24, T in the Park on July 8 and the Reading/Leeds double header on August bank holiday weekend.
