Malody

Hello this is Barry, lead singer and guitarist from The Futureheads. It is with a great sensation of excitement that I announce that my debut solo album ‘Malody’ is available to pre-order on CD, vinyl and download and will be released on the 3rd June on Sirenspire Records.

As well as making the album available with this campaign with PledgeMusic, I am also offering bespoke songs, improvisations, music lessons and ‘made to order’ piano and orchestral versions of Futureheads songs of your own choice.

I self-financed the album and recorded it at First Avenue Studios in Heaton, Newcastle with my dear friend Dave Curle. It was a pleasure to have him at the mixing desk and we completed the album in about 15 sessions spread out between September 2014 and February 2015. After a gigantic exercise in the virtue of patience that album is finally ready. Those of you familiar with my work with The Futureheads may be expecting an album of new wave inspired, four-part harmony, guitar music. ‘Malody’ couldn’t be further away from that. The album is based around my first instrument, the piano, and also features violin, cello, double bass, tenor and baritone sax, pedal steel and trumpet.

In short, the album is a collection of songs that I have written (there are two cover versions on that album also) and selected to give an insight in to the extreme emotional experience that those that have battled / are battling chronic mental health problems. I was one of those people and amongst other things making this album was a massive part of my recovery in to good health. This album is bipolar. I will explain more about this in a future updates.

I offer great gratitude to all of you for support and hope you take advantage of all that’s on offer and enjoy the album!
