Justin Sullivan of New Model Army releases his second solo album in May. Sixteen new songs, written in the first weeks of the 2020 lockdown, check out the video to the single Amundsen below.
Justin says, “Under the circumstances, it wasn’t particularly surprising that this was the moment to make another solo record and the songs came thick and fast in the first few weeks of the lockdown. There is not so much about ‘what’s happening in the World’. As with ‘Navigating by the Stars’, which was written in the aftermath of 9/11, I wanted to write about other things – some well-known stories, some less well-known, a few autobiographical and more a landscape of the imagination than social comment.
“I’m grateful for all the many musical contributions I received from friends that help create all the different atmospheres and places; it’s a long album, but it seems that all the songs belonged together in one collection. I hope people enjoy it.”
Surrounded will be available on CD Hardcover Media Book, Heavyweight Double Vinyl Gatefold and Digital and is available for pre-order now: https://justinsullivan.lnk.to/Surrounded
