Justin Currie - The Great War - Out May 4th On Ryko
Justin Currie, the former lead singer of Scottish pop-rock powerhouse Del Amitri, will release his second album The Great War on Ryko on May 4, 2010.
This record follows his 2007 solo debut, What Is Love For, acclaimed for its superb songcraft and somber brilliance. On The Great War, Currie returns with a fresh collection of infectious melodies and ingenious wordplay - a combination of dark lyrical themes melded with a newfound optimism.
The first single off The Great War is "A Man With Nothing To Do," and with it, Currie evokes a sense of vivacity with its harmonious hooks and upbeat tempos, while at the same time, unveiling a certain complexity and suspicion with his solemn yet endearing lyrics.
“A Man With Nothing To Do” is now available at iTunes
