Former Doves frontman Jimi Goodwin will release his debut solo album 'Odludek' in March 2014 – listen to the first track from it, titled 'Oh Whiskey!' below.

Goodwin will release the album, which was self-produced with Dan Austin (Doves, Pixies), it is set for release on Heavenly on March 24 2014.

Speaking about the album, Goodwin says: "I wanted to make this mad mixtape… the kind you'd pass back and forth with your mates; eclectic as fuck. That’s the way we’ve all discovered music over the years isn’t it? We join our own dots to make it all make sense."

He continues: "As I got into making the record, it felt like I was proving something to myself, making a point that I could do all this on my own. You know - I can play bass, I can play guitar, I can orchestrate. As the methods changed, the original concept stayed intact. It’s me, powering through ideas, kapow kapow, no pause for breath. It's not trying to be wilfully eclectic; it’s just a reflection of how I schizophrenically devour music."

The 'Odludek' tracklisting is as follows:

'Terracotta Warrior'
'Didsbury Girl'
'Live Like A River'
'Hope'
'Man v Dingo'
'Keep My Soul In Song'
'Oh! Whiskey'
'Ghost Of The Empties'
'Lonely At The Drop'
'Panic Tree'
