We are super excited to be able to reveal brand new material from Dan Bettridge. His upcoming debut album ‘Asking For Trouble’ will be available for release on 1st June 2018, which you can pre-order here now!
‘Wave One’ sees Dan Bettridge release the first four tracks off the upcoming record.
Following tastemaker acclaim for his 2017 single releases ‘Heavenly Father’ and ‘Blame’ from CLASH, THE LINE OF BEST FIT and DEMUR amongst others, Dan now releases Asking For Trouble (Wave One) on 16th February 2018. ‘Wave One’ is an introduction to Dan’s ongoing progression as an artist and a teaser for what’s to come; consisting of opening track ‘Old Man’, followed by ‘Heavenly Father’, ‘Legacy’ and ‘Destiny Row’ – a heartfelt and emotionally-charged testament to battles with relationships, politics and purpose.
Talking about the record, Dan says;
“I believe in the songs so much I thought they deserved to be met with no distraction. It’s me saying ‘I think I did it – take a look at these 4 songs at a time’. I learned a lot making this album and haven’t stopped writing and thinking about more since – it’s opened my eyes a lot and I have a few more strings to my bow than before. ‘Old Man’ is an ode from one generation to the previous. ‘Heavenly Father’, a plea for answers. ‘Legacy’ was written the night of the Bataclan attack, it was one of those songs that are just handed to you, you don’t know where from but it pours out in 10 minutes and you just trust it. ‘Destiny Row’ is a brief, pessimistic vision of purpose – personally, artistically, globally.”
