Eugene McGuinness announces new album ‘The Invitation To The Voyage’

| On 27, Mar 2012

Domino Records is proud to announce the new album from Eugene McGuinness, The Invitation To The Voyage, released on 25th June 2012.

Equally primal and playful, swaggering yet soulful, anthemic but sonically experimental, The Invitation To The Voyage is the second full-length album from Eugene McGuinness and his most powerfully conceived and fully realised artistic statement to date. Recorded with the dual assistance of producers Clive Langer (Madness, Elvis Costello, Morrissey) and Dan Carey (MIA, Hot Chip, Santigold), The Invitation is an unabashedly bombastic, brave and above all, thoroughly contemporary update on a distinctly English strand of lyrical, gently fantastical pop songwriting that locates and celebrates the beautiful and the bizarre in modern life.

The Invitation To The Voyage will be available on CD, LP and digitally. The track list is as follows:

1. Harlequinade
2. Sugarplum
3. Lion
4. Videogame
5. Shotgun
6. Concrete Moon
7. Thunderbolt
8. Invitation To The Voyage
9. Joshua
10. Japanese Cars
