A new year, a new record!
Stay tuned for news of a brand new solo collection of Americana songs by the Englishman for a French label. Yes, you read that right.
Spottiswoode & His Enemies sixth studio recording. A haunting new departure for the New York septet. After winning two Independent Music Awards for 2012’s Wild Goosechase Expedition - a poppy and satirical romp about a rock band’s doomed tour - the band returns with a beautiful and much more atmospheric set.
ENGLISH DREAM is an English record! Written and sung by an Englishman but recorded in Brooklyn by a New York band. “Salvation, our fourth record - was Americana,” says Spottiswoode. “This time we’ve gone Anglicana and made a pastoral collection of songs about nature, love, childhood and the other side of the pond. Sometimes it’s idyllic and sometimes it’s a bit scary.”
See the trailer for the band's sixth record.
The first single from ENGLISH DREAM, No Time For Love, is a piano led number delivered as a duo harmony by Spottiswoode and band trumpeter, Kevin Cordt.
The song has been in rotation at numerous radio stations around the country including WXPN, WRSI, WDST, WTMD and many more. Don't be shy. Request it!
"It's the only song I wrote at the piano for this record," says Spottiswoode. "It's also the last song I wrote for the record. I thought we needed an upbeat catchy pop ditty. This is what came out."
