Doves frontman Jimi Goodwin on solo album: ‘No, you don’t know what it’s going to sound like’

Singer-songwriter set to step out with debut album 'Odulek' on March 24

Former Doves frontman Jimi Goodwin has said that his first solo album is an unpredictable listen.

Goodwin speaks in this week’s NME, which is on newsstands now and available digitally, ahead of the release of his debut solo album ‘Odludek’.

Speaking about the forthcoming album, which comes out on March 24, Goodwin says: “I had this thing where I could hear people saying, ‘The guy from Doves has made a solo record. I bet I know how that will sound.’ There’s nothing contrived about this album, but if there was one thing I was conscious of it was being able to say to people, ‘No, you don’t know what it’s going to sound like,’ without being wilfully eclectic.”


Goodwin will play York The Duchess on February 24, followed by Hebden Bridge Trades Club on February 25 and Chester Live Rooms on February 27. He will then play Manchester Victoria Warehouse on February 28 as part of the BBC 6Music Festival.

Goodwin will also tour with Elbow on their UK arena tour in April. Click here for dates. In addition, he will play a headline slot at Port Eliot Festival in Cornwall, which takes place from July 24–27.
