Skinny Pelembe will release new album ‘Hardly The Same Snake’.
The songwriter’s debut album ‘Dreaming Is Dead Now’ landed in 2019, a cross-genre brew that fused political elements with his own personal revelations. Since then he’s taken a step back, signing a new deal with Partisan Records and kicking off work on fresh music.
Recently playing London’s Social, Skinny Pelembe previewed new material, and illustrated the path ahead. New album ‘Hardly The Same Snake’ is the result, and it’s set to land on April 28th.
New single ‘Don’t Be Another’ is out now, a spiky, dynamic, and urgent return. Skinny Pelembe comments…
“New life and the end of it. You could find a place to hide behind your palms, eyes shut, digging out the past, like some lost scavenger. OR, you might find yourself in a better place if you ‘straighten out your spine, shoot for something GOOD, promise you won’t cry, and be the ties that bind.’ I’d actually just finished the album the night before, me and my manager zoomed around London blasting it out and he suggested I try and write a track for another bigger artist. Why not?”
“Anyway, got dropped off at home, got the Gretsch out, put pen to paper. 20 minutes later it was fucking written! Verses, chorus, bridge, ALL OF IT. Fell right out the sky. Easy. Way too easy. And too good to share. Like a Terry’s Chocolate Orange. One of the best songs I’ve written so far. Fuck giving this one to anyone else!”
Tune in now.
