JOHNNY LLOYD has announced a surprise new album: ‘Low Fidelity: Vol. 1’, set to land in just two weeks time.
Something of an early Christmas gift for fans of the ex-Tribes man everywhere, this extensive collection will be released on 6th December 2019 via the Xtra Mile Recordings label. The first track to be cut from the release is ‘Happy Humans (Demo)’, which is available to listen to today.
Listen to lead single ‘Happy Humans (Demo)’ Here:
A retrospective release and a cathartic exercise for the singer, ‘Low Fidelity: Vol.1’ will draw together an array of demo recordings from throughout Johnny’s years as a solo artist. Retrieved from Johnny’s personal 8-track recorder and untouched since their creation, the tracks will be true to the album’s title and left deliberately low in fidelity, but high in reward. With material dating back to 2014 up to the present year, the collection will include previously unheard and unreleased numbers, as well as alternative versions of singles such as ‘Happy Humans (Demo)’ (out now).
Appearing on 2016’s ‘Dreamland’ EP, ‘Happy Humans’ has become something of a fan favourite in Johnny’s live sets and is a track that would later be produced by Hugo White of The Maccabees.
With further details and its tracklisting to emerge in the coming weeks, the arrival of ‘Low Fidelity: Volume 1’ this December will book-end a year of fervent activity for Johnny Lloyd, which all began with the announcement of his debut solo album: ‘Next Episode Starts In 15 Seconds’. Recorded with producer Nathan Coen and mastered at Abbey Road Studios by Frank Arkwright, Johnny’s debut solo album marked a deeply personal and dreamy-sounding new chapter in his career, and also featured special guest appearances from Frank Turner, Hugo White (The Maccabees) and Adam Prendergast of Harry Styles’ band.
Releasing the solo album in May of this year, Johnny has since taken its songs to the fields of established UK festivals such as Glastonbury and 2000 Trees and even as far as We Are Todos Festival in Mexico City.
Currently in the midst of an extensive run of UK shows that began this Autumn and will come to a head in London on 14th December (full dates at details below), Johnny now ends the year as he started it, with a twist of the unexpected and surprise of a new release.
Johnny Lloyd will release the new album: ‘Low Fidelity: Vol. 1’ – 6th December 2019, via Xtra Mile Recordings. Pre-order Here.
