"Black Tambourine" from Withered Hand, new album coming
A new song from Withered Hand -- Edinburgh's Dan Willson -- invariably is a happy event. But "Black Tambourine" is extra special as it is the first release from his upcoming album New Gods. The tune is poppy, jangly and upbeat, and suggests good things for the album.
Dan has earned devoted fans in the UK, where the new album will be released by Fortuna POP! New Gods will be released in the US and Canada by Slumberland Records, and we hope that will bring his music to many more fans. The new album was produced by noted Scottish producer Tony Doogan, and features contributions from Eugene Kelly (The Vaselines), Pam Berry (Black Tambourine) and members of Belle & Sebastian and Frightened Rabbit. It will be released in late February or March.
