2018 album. PJ Harvey on one track. Also available in Vinyl.
John Parish announces his new album ‘Bird Dog Dante’. John Parish’s list of musical accomplishments is long, yet for years the self-effacing Bristol native has been happy outside the spotlight. The twice Ensor-nominated composer and Mercury Prize-winning producer delivers a brand new collection of songs, including a duet with his longtime musical partner PJ Harvey.
‘Bird Dog Dante’ was completed in a busy year for Parish. On top of being the musical director of the extended PJ Harvey band on their ‘Hope Six Demolition Project’ world tour, he produced acclaimed albums for Jenny Hval, This Is The Kit, Nadine Khouri and Aldous Harding. ‘Bird Dog Dante’ features duets with both PJ Harvey and Aldous Harding, as well as drumming from Harvey’s bandmate Jean-Marc Butty.
In addition to touring with his own band in April, Parish is playing a commemorative show of Nick Drake’s music at St George’s, Bristol in what would have been Drake’s 70th year.
CD version in 4 panel mini-LP style gatefold package. LP version pressed on virgin vinyl and packaged in an uncoated stock jacket with an artworked inner sleevefeaturing spot metallic ink and a free digital download coupon.
