New Dick Valentine Solo Album Announced

Dick Valentine has announced on Facebook that a third solo album – entitled ‘Hero Come The Bags’ is to be released in spring.

Including some acoustic tracks and some tracks recorded with William Bates, and even more with John Nash, the album will be supported with a tour in April or May.

You can read the full quote below:

ANNOUNCEMENT! With all the hubub and chatter about my kickass literary career, through the endless requests for info on how to download my party planners and pornographic thriller novel, it’s easy to forget sometimes that I’m an accomplished singer/songwriter. I am pleased as punch to announce that I have finished recording my 3rd solo release “Here Come The Bags!” and I anticipate a release on iTunes and Amazon sometime in the next couple of months.
Though there are a couple straight-up acoustic tracks on this one, this is not a purely acoustic album like the first two. That is to say, there is electricity. Twelve songs….five songs were recorded in New York with William Bates, five songs were recorded in Detroit with The White Wolf, one was written by my good friend Mark Mallman therein which he performed all the music and I just sang the inspirational, yet depressing lyrics that he wrote, and for shits and giggles I’ve done one myself on Garage Band. That’s twelve songs, baby! That’s “Here Come The Bags!” I can’t wait to get it to you. But I have to wait a bit. That’s just how it is.
I am in the process of getting a solo acoustic tour of the UK for late April/early May. At this time you can reach into my bag and grab a physical copy of “Here Come The Bags!”
