Badly Drawn Boy Readies New Album, Listen To A New Demo

Badly Drawn Boy is gearing up for a new release, It's What I'm Thinking, Pt 1 which is due on October 4th in England.  After his Born in the U.K. album received some bad press, he had a hard time getting back in the studio.  He was able to write the score for a TV drama called "The Fattest Man in Britain" and then he turned his attention to writing his own album.

A demo of the track, "In Safe Hands" can be heard over at 24bit and you can check out some other stuff on Badly Drawn Boy's youtube channel.

Badly Drawn Boy Goes 'Back to the Beginning'

Badly Drawn Boy has recently told BBC's 6music,  "I really honestly feel like I’m back to the beginning. Whatever’s been done in the past is done, whatever I’ve achieved or not achieved."  He has recently released the soundtrack to a TV movie called, "Is There Nothing We Can Do" and is beginning work on his seventh studio album. Hopefully he can come back with an amazing record.

New Badly Drawn Boy Video - "The Time Of Times"

This "slightly revamped" take on Badly Drawn Boy's "The Time Of Times" is from the forthcoming UK film Definitely Maybe, which centers on a guy with an impending divorce attempting to explain love to his daughter. Likely tear jerky, yes, but oh so bitter and sweet in equal parts, as you'll figure out on your own by watching the following.  Source

Badly Drawn Single

What's wrong with a limited release anymore? To add to the ridiculousness of BOWIE releasing 23 different versions of his new greatest hits, BADLY DRAWN BOY will be releasing and deleting his new single in the same day. October 14 will see the release of Damon's new material "You Were Right" in the UK, only to have the material disappear by the end of business hours.

So much for finding it in America...
