James Franco’s Smiths-inspired band Daddy share new song – hear ‘You Are Mine’ now

Track also features Tim O'Keefe and The Smiths' own Andy Rourke on bass

Daddy, the group fronted by actor James Franco, have revealed another song from their Smiths-inspired album.

Franco has previously written poetry influenced by the Manchester band’s songs which have now become the basis for original music and a feature film.

The album, which is titled ‘Let Me Get What I Want’ and is reference to The Smiths’ 1984 song ‘Please, Please, Please, Let Me Get What I Want’, will be released in 2016 via Kobalt. ‘You Are Mine’ from the album can be streamed below:

Daddy is a musical partnership between Franco and multi-instrumentalist Tim O’Keefe. The Smiths’ own bassist Andy Rourke will also feature on every track.

The album and film follow “three characters as they weave through the dark ways of high school: love, death, and dreams.” Franco is quoted as saying: “High school is a time of longing for the unattainable. We dream big, but we’re still too young to make anything significant happen. At least I was too immature and sensitive to be the person I wanted to be. “You are Mine” is about one teenager dreaming about another, even though they’ll never be together.”

Every song on the new album will have a music video, and the 10 clips will together form an hour-long art film.
