My Little Prince is the new lead single from Danny Green aka Laish, taken from his forthcoming new album Pendulum Swing. The album may not have happened if it were not for his decision to move from Brighton to London where he found the much-needed inspiration and motivation to create something new. Judging by this single alone, that move seems to have paid off well. The single is released 30 Sept via Talires.
Talking about his move to London Green expands:
“I could feel myself becoming fossilised in Brighton, hardening into the grooves of my drinking and laziness so before I became fully set in amber, I dragged myself away and moved to London. Landing in the capital as a single and penniless adult was a harsh slap in the face, a mirror held up to my failure and lack of preparation for any kind of real life outside of music.
I spent a year of gradually learning to love the pace of life in the city and I finally found the nerve to book a real studio and get to work on the album that had been forming during this turbulent period. I was honest with myself about the sounds and the kinds of songs that excite my ears. I wanted to get across a simple truth but for there to be no barriers to the listener, for it to really sound vibrant, sexy and humorous.”
Pendulum Swing was produced by Danny Green and recorded, mixed and co-produced by Dave Gerard at Watchtower Studios, North London. The album will be released on CD, Vinyl and Digitally via Talitres on 4 November – pre-order it here.
