Pop Levi has announced the details of his debut album, ‘The Return To Form Black Magick Party’.
The former Ladytron bassist will release his full-length debut in the UK on February 12.
“I’d like the album to win the Mercury Prize,” Levi told NME.COM. “I hope people really get into it.”
According to Levi, “the album is all about putting things backwards, sideways, through mirrors and on their head. Black magic is the main theme. It’s about the left path — the more sinister way”.
The London born, Los Angeles-based singer/songwriter and multi-instrumentalist recorded the album in unusual locations around the world, including an airplane toilet above Greenland, his Victorian house in Liverpool, and church rooftops in Los Angeles. “If you’re into creating stuff, you have to move around,” he said.
Levi will soon be featured on the BBC music programme, ’Subculture’, and will embark on a tour of the UK before returning to the US to play dates including one at Austin’s South by Southwest music festival.
