The Divine Comedy - Foreverland (The Divine Comedy , 2016)
After announcing over fifty live shows (including two at the London Palladium) for October 2016 and February 2017, The Divine Comedy announce details of their forthcoming album ‘Foreverland’ out September 2nd on Divine Comedy Records.
Since The Divine Comedy’s inception Neil Hannon has time and again proved to be one of the UK’s best and most original songwriters. Recorded in Ireland and London and written, arranged and produced by Neil Hannon, ‘Foreverland’ is a byzantine patchwork of love, longing and imperial ambition.
Neil says of the new record, ‘it’s about meeting your soul mate and living happily ever after… and then what comes after happily ever after. Get ready for the most historically inaccurate hit of the summer’.
The first single to be taken from the album is ‘Catherine The Great’ and it will be available from Friday June 24th. The accompanying video was made by French director Raphaël Neal (Fever, 2015) and stars acclaimed actress Elina Löwensohn (muse of Hal Hartley and Bertrand Mandico).
As well as the swashbuckling title track, ‘Foreverland’ features the self deluding Napoleon Complex, the heroic ‘To The Rescue’, the unforgettable ‘I Joined the Foreign Legion (To Forget)’ and the heart warming ‘Funny Peculiar’ – a duet with the wonderful Cathy Davey.
