Cosmo Sheldrake has been releasing music with us since The Moss came out in 2014, and most recently - last month to be precise - he shared the song Come Along. The song now has a music video directed by Josh Allott and we can share the news that it will be part of Cosmo's debut album - The Much Much How How and I.
The album will be out on 6 April 2018, and can be pre-ordered from today on CD and vinyl. You could also head over to Cosmo's own website where signed copies are available bundled with art prints and tea towels featuring the album art.
The video for Come Along can be seen below, it's all about "the experience of both having head lice and being a head louse. Microscopic worlds expand and consume the macroscopic world of the large. Human heads become continents, scalps become landscapes, salons become solar systems. Come
The Much Much How How and I was written under the influence of a diverse group of musicians - ranging from The Beatles and The Kinks to Moondog and Stravinsky - and shaped by Sheldrake’s study of anthropology at the University of Sussex, his longstanding interest in ethnomusicology and a trip to
Mardi Gras in New Orleans. It was produced by Cosmo Sheldrake and Matthew Herbert (Bjork, Mica Levi, London Sinfonietta) and recorded at Soup Studios and Cosmo’s basement. Cosmo will be playing more music from the album at a short run of shows in Europe later this month for which you can find tickets at cosmosheldrake.com
