Art d‘Ecco has confirmed the title of his new studio album, After The Head Rush which will be released on June 242022 via Paper Bag Records. Pairing this news with another  single and video from it, “Only Ones” available everywhere now. The alt-rocker/producer, now platinum blonde and make-up free, refers to it simply as “a love song.” PRE ORDER/PRE SAVE After The Head Rush HERE.

The video for the song has been previewed by Brooklyn Vegan and Exclaim already. Both outlets also revealed more details for new album, showcasing the cover art. The full track list follows below.

After The Head Rush was recorded at the legendary Hipposonic Studios (formerly Little Mountain Studios) in Vancouver, where d’Ecco was able to harvest its iconic rock sound. The arrangements were filled out on proven home turf at Hive Studios in Victoria alongside key local talent, before d’Ecco carried his newest creation to Montreal, ready for mixing with Mark Lawson (Arcade Fire); “an expert at creating space within the mix.”

Each track is a new morning after; warm and comforting odes to hope in the form of the Bonnie and Clyde top-down freedom of “Run Away”,the familiarity of tandem self-medication in “SAD Light Disco”, and the stentorian, devoted howl of “Only Ones.”

PRAISE for Art d’Ecco

“uber-groovy anthem.” (Palm Slave) – Earmilk

“Art d’Ecco are back with a glam-infused electronica that is ‘Palm Slave’. Sounding equally inspired by The Stooges, David Bowie and Soft Cell, it’s a hell of an eclectic mix that perfectly forms a track you’re going to end up putting on repeat for at least an hour or two!” – Uber Rock

“d’Ecco’s familiar sound lands somewhere between the accessible glam of early Killers records and the icy coldwave of Drab Majesty on the cover” – FLOOD

“Packed with punchy, super-catchy songs” – Brooklyn Vegan

“Throughout, d’Ecco salvages sounds from another era, laced in mod ’60s, ’70s glam, and a grainier world pre-MTV, from opening “Desires,” which explores the shifting tides of stardom and being yesterday’s news, through the enigmatic “TV God,” which finds d’Ecco swaggering through the more cretinous scope of show biz.” – American Songwriter

Art d’Ecco may just be the alien star we all need – Wire

In Standard Definition, offering escapism from the lumpen brutishness so beloved by the colourless modern day indie rock scene…an album of killer tunes that may be mannered to within an inch of its life, but are crammed full of wit and bravado.” – MusicOHM

It’s a shame that a ritzy gentlemen’s club now occupies the original Soho site of Blitz, since Art d’Ecco was born to be a belle of the New Romantic ball.” – 8/10 Uncut

“Matching precocious art-rock elements to that preening Marc Bolan stomp, it’s reminiscent of New York Dolls in its androgynous swagger.” – Clash

“The fog machines, slow fades and d’Ecco’s sparkling threads help bolster the song’s retro rock flair, which recalls the best and boldest of David Bowie and T. Rex thanks to sultry background vocals and plenty of percussive flourishes.” – Exclaim

“d’Ecco’s sophomore full-length plays out like the pictures between the static of idle channel surfing. Each track on In Standard Definition plays like an episode into celebrity culture.”-Consequence of Sound
