Former Doves frontman Jimi Goodwin announces solo album plans

The singer will release his debut LP 'Odludek' in March

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’
‘Man v Dingo’
‘Keep My Soul In Song’
‘Oh! Whiskey’
‘Ghost Of The Empties’
‘Lonely At The Drop’
‘Panic Tree’
