:: So great!
Back in June, Jonny Greenwood wrote in a column for The Guardian that Radiohead are taking a year off from working together. Radiohead drummer Philip Selway is now about to release his second solo album Weatherhouse in a few days. It follows the 2011 Running Blind EP and his stunning 2010 solo debut full-length Familial.
Weatherhouse is released officially in Germany/Austria/Switzerland tomorrow (October 03, 2014) via Bella Union. UK/European release follows on October 06, North America sees release on October 07. The LP will be available as download, CD and 12″ vinyl LP. You can buy digitally from iTunes or order your physical copy of Weatherhouse directly from Philip Selway’s Store.
The set of ten songs is a collaboration of Philip Selway with musicians Adem Ilhan and Quinta who had previously performed in Selway’s backing band. Mainly working at Radiohead’s studio in Oxfordshire, Adem also produced and engineered Weatherhouse while Quinta did much of the arrangements. David Wrench mixed the album.
It Will End in Tears is the second single taken from Weatherhouse. The song comes with a music video directed by Rammatik, watch it above. In a label press release, Selway commented on the album’s dominant theme: “It’s very much about taking stock of my life. I wanted to convey a sense of release and affirmation. [Coming Up For Air] was the first song that we recorded. Immediately it felt in a very different space from Familial.”
Coming Up For Air was the first single taken from Weatherhouse. The official video for the amazing song is directed by NYSU. Philip Selway will be touring Europe next February with a string of nine Shows, four of which in the UK. You can check out all dates below and watch the Coming Up For Air video.
