Graham Coxon releases his second album in June, and he plays everything on it...
The follow-up to 1998’s ‘The Sky Is Too High’, the 12-track album will be released through Coxon‘s own Transcopic imprint, a subsidiary of Parlophone.
Of the dozen tracks, ten are Coxon originals, while two, ‘That’s When I Reach For My Revolver’ and ‘Fame & Fortune’, are covers of early ’80s post-punk American underground band Mission Of Burma. Moby covered ‘That’s When I Reach For My Revolver’ on his 1996 ‘Animal Rights’ album.
Coxon has performed all vocals, plays all the instruments and produces the album. The record’s opening track ‘Jamie Thomas’ is a tribute to the titular skateboarder renowned within the skateboader fraternity for his dangerous stunts.
A spokesperson for Coxon confirmed that a solo tour will follow, though at present no dates have been confirmed.
The full tracklisting for ‘The Golden D’ is as follows:‘Jamie Thomas’, ‘The Fear’, ‘Satan I Gratan’, ‘Fame & Fortune’, ‘My Idea Of Hell’, ‘The Lake’, ‘Fags & Failure’, ‘Leave Me Alone’, ‘Keep Hope Alive’, ‘Oochy Woochy’, ‘That’s When I Reach For My Revolver’.
