Ahead of the release of his new record at the end of the month, Baxter Dury has released the title track ‘Prince of Tears.’
Speaking about the track, Baxter states:
“Prince of Tears is a cinematic presentation of a small man’s attempt at being open”.
‘Prince of Tears’ is the last track on the record, which also features the single ‘Miami.’
‘Miami’ has been featured on the BBC 6 Music A-List & remixed by Jarvis Cocker & Parrot which you can listen to here.
‘Prince of Tears’ is Baxter’s fifth record and features a full band and orchestra to truly bring the soundscapes of his emotional netherworld to life.
Guest appearances on the record are from Jason Williamson from Sleaford Mods on the track ‘Almond Milk’ and Rose Elinor Dougall on ‘Porcelain’, as well as long-term collaborator Madelaine Hart providing backing vocals across numerous tracks.
“Casually unique and an unbounded joy to listen to, it’s the quintessential Baxter Dury album” – Q ★★★★
“A career best album’ – Mojo ★★★★
“Patently, Baxter Dury paid in physical and mental wellbeing to make ‘Prince of Tears.’ The results are priceless.” – Record Collector ★★★★
“Baxter comments, ‘it’s massively delusional, but, because of that it’s also emotionally true. This prince is becoming a king.” – Louder Than War 9/10
“Dury’s DNA is undoubtedly the bedrock for his songwriting, but he’s no mere throwback to his dad’s punk-poet pre-eminence.” – Electronic Sound
