Radiohead drummer announces details of debut solo album
Thursday 03 June 2010
Radiohead drummer Philip Selway is set to release his debut solo album on August 30, announced UK record label Bella Union on June 3.
Familial will feature collaborations with singer/songwriter Lisa Germano, former Soul Coughing bassist Sebastian Steinberg, Wilco drummer Glenn Kotche, and multi-instrumentalist Patrick Sansone.
Selway began working with the roster musicians in 2001, and some of the music that came out of the initial collaboration can be heard on the charity album 7 Worlds Collide. Familial will reportedly focus more heavily on Selway's singing and songwriting, which he developed as the collaboration continued.
Bella Union calls the album "a collection of sublimely fragile, haunting and heartfelt songs that will surprise many."
'Familial' track listing:
"By Some Miracle"
"A Simple Life"
"All Eyes On You"
"The Ties That Bind Us"
"Don't Look Down"
"The Witching Hour"
Familiar will be out in the UK on August 30; international release dates, if different, have yet to be announced.
