BADLY DRAWN BOY, aka Damon Gough, releases his new single ‘Too Many Miracles’ on October 3rd.
A beautiful animated video to the track, created by Willy Mason’s brother Sam Mason, can be watched here:
The single is the first to be taken from his forthcoming new album ‘It’s What I’m Thinking Part 1 – Photographing Snowflakes’, due for release the same week on Damon’s own new label, One Last Fruit.
‘Too Many Miracles’will be available to download at all the usual places on October 3rd but will also be available as 500 limited edition prints (reportage style shots covering a recent afternoon spent with Gough in his neck of the woods – Didsbury, near Manchester) the week before, each carrying a unique photograph of BADLY DRAWN BOY. Collect the set! On the back of each print will be instructions on how to download the single. This will be available from independent UK music retailers on September 27th. As part of the download package with the print, fans will get an exclusive version of “Shake The Rollercoaster”, a track that originally appeared on BDB’s first EP, re-recorded recently when Gough was putting his new album together.
The iTunes download single includes a remix of “Too Many Miracles” by Tim and Sam’s Tim and the Sam Band with Tim and Sam, one of a number of acts from the North West of England who will feature on “It’s What They’re Thinking”. This album is a version of the forthcoming BDB album that has been created to promote up and coming talent from and around Damon’s home town, and will be available in the limited edition deluxe box set of the new album, which can be pre-ordered now from www.badlydrawnboy.co.uk.
