Baxter Dury has announced a new album.

'The Night Chancers' will arrive through Heavenly Recordings on March 20, with his biggest UK tour set to follow in April. He'll call in Leeds, Glasgow, Hebden Bridge, Cardiff, London, Birmingham, Manchester, Bristol and Brighton before heading to mainland Europe. Tickets go on sale at 10am on November 22. 

Discussing the new record, Baxter said:

“Night Chancers is about being caught out in your attempt at being free, it’s about someone leaving a hotel room at three in the morning. You’re in a posh room with big Roman taps and all that, but after they go suddenly all you can hear is the taps dripping, and all you can see the debris of the night is around you. Then suddenly a massive party erupts, in the room next door. This happened to me and all I could hear was the night chancer, the hotel ravers.”

Head below to check out the Tom Haines-directed video for new track Slumlord, a funky, string-led track featuring a trademark spoken word performance from Dury, with the lion's share of the vocals being taken care of by female backing singers.

'The Night Chancers' tracklist:

  1. I’m Not Your Dog
  2. Slumlord
  3. Salvia Hog

Thu 08 Nov 2018
When Baxter Dury picks apart the ironies of the modern day on Only My Honesty Matters, in that deep, cigarette-gravelled voice, the minimalism of the instrumental beneath his rhythmic, spoken word monologue about “having a roll up” and “impotent white obvious people” listening to Florence and the Machine is almost forgivable. Almost.

With the economics of the music industry in a prolonged state of flux, bands have found new ways to get by. Cold War Kids, who burst onto the American indie scene with ‘Robbers and Cowards’ in 2006, have decided to release three short albums instead of one full LP. ‘New Age Norms 1’ is the first in that series and to longtime fans the results will be pleasing.
