Scene Sussex announce: Idlewild’s Roddy Woomble for Lewes show – 10 September
RODDY WOOMBLE announces an extensive run of UK dates for 2017 as he prepares to tour his latest solo outing ‘The Deluder’.
Following on from the brooding, atmospheric ‘Like Caruso’ single in March and showcasing the diversity of his upcoming and highly anticipated fourth solo album ‘The Deluder’ – ’Jupiter’ sees Roddy and his band in a surreal & playful mood channeling both solo McCartney and Pavement, in a quirky, melodic and memorable pop song.
On the new single ‘Jupiter’ Woomble says “ the song actually started out as something I was making up for (and with) my son, who is eight years old and quite interested in astronomy – working on it with my band, who are all adults, it developed and took on a new meaning; the emphasis, and hope we place in mysterious things we don’t fully understand. Constellations, Planets, astrology, the secrets we keep from each other, while still aiming to keep some of the fun, irreverent nature of the original idea, both in the music and lyrics”
The video for the song was filmed in Berlin by director Oscar Sansom, a long standing collaborator with Roddy.
‘The Deluder’ is released on September 1st on A Modern Way/Empty Words and is available to pre-order now from www.roddywoomble.net
Roddy, who also fronts Scottish indie rock band Idlewild, who had eight acclaimed albums and three compilations, two of which charted in the UK top ten. They have released twelve UK top forty singles and have toured throughout the world, as a headline act, and also as support to REM, U2, Pearl Jam and the Rolling Stones amongst others.
