The follow-up to his 2009 solo debut ‘Grace/Wastelands’, ‘Hamburg Demonstrations’ will be released on 2 December.
Produced, recorded and mixed by Johann Scheerer, The Libertines and Babyshambles man took to Hamburg to make the album after ‘falling in love’ with the Clouds Hill Recordings studio and moving to the German city for six months.
