I'm very pleased to reveal the Lyric Video for my new album's lead track 'The Miraculous Elixir'.
I started writing this song just after I finished 'The Life and Death of A.J Rail' nearly three years ago, as I had planned to do a Medicine Show themed album as a follow up. But I never got any further than the guitar part and one verse before abandoning the idea.
Since then a Medicine Show themed album has always been on my list of things to do, but I could never find enough material for inspiration to warrant a full album's worth of songs based around the theme. In October after talking with Jason Elliott about writing an album for the Great British Rhythm & Blues Festival 2018, I had a flash of inspiration. I decided to use the Medicine Show as a backdrop for a different type of story, then it all just fell into place.
The result is 'Dr Bloodwort's Nefarious Medicine Show', and I'm extremely proud of it, it has sort of been three years in the making, but now I can tick it off my 'Albums to write' list.
You can Pre-order the new CD direct from my Bandcamp Store now, the official release date is August 25th on all digital distribution platforms. CD and T-Shirt bundles are still available for Pre-order too.
