Baxter Dury releases his new album Prince of Tears via new label Heavenly Recordings. Prince of Tearswas recorded at the end of 2016 at Hoxa Studios, co-produced by Baxter himself and Ash Workman (Metronomy) and mixed by longstanding collaborator Craig Silvey (Arcade Fire, New Order, Florence and the Machine). Intensely personal, yet brutally open, this is Baxter’s fifth album and his most ambitious and biggest work to date. Whilst retaining the natty charm of his previous works, like his debut Len Parrot’s Memorial Lift or the acclaimed Happy Soup, Baxter this time worked with a full band and orchestra to truly bring the soundscapes of his emotional netherworld to life. The album features notable guests; including longstanding fan 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 and illuminating some of the album’s dark corners.
