The Working Men’s Club frontman told fans via his band’s official Twitter account today (April 18) that his debut record is on the way.
“Been working on a solo record for quite some time now. It’s very nearly finished. Hoping it will be publicly audible in the next year or so,” Minsky-Sargeant wrote.

His comments follow Working Men’s Club announcing recently their second album, ‘Fear Fear’, which is released on July 15 via Heavenly (pre-order here). The first preview of it was shared last month with the single ‘Widow’.
The band’s self-titled debut album came out in 2020, and they announced last September that its follow-up was finished.
Minsky-Sargeant said of the new record: “The first album was mostly a personal documentation lyrically, this is a blur between personal and a third-person perspective of what was going on.
“I like the contrast of it being happy, uplifting music and really dark lyrics,” he added. “It’s not a minimal record, certainly compared to the first one. That’s because there’s been a lot more going on that needed to be said.
“We just set out to make the best-sounding album we could,” Minsky-Sargeant added of ‘Fear Fear’, which was produced by Ross Orton, whose previous credits include Arctic Monkeys and M.I.A., at Orton’s studio in Sheffield.
