Baxter Dury’s made an album that features Sleaford Mods – here’s the first song

'Prince of Tears' is coming out in October

In the latest edition of Loud And Quiet, Baxter Dury was kind enough to open the doors to his west London home and show us some of his most notable personal possessions in our My Place feature. It’s because he’s a nice guy, but also because he’s got a new album on the way, which has been announced this morning.

‘Prince of Tears’, Baxter’s fifth LP, will be coming out on his new label Heavenly Recordings on 27 October.

Excitingly, the LP features Jason Williamson from Sleaford Mods on a track called ‘Almond Milk’ and vocals from Rose Elinor Dougall on ‘Porcelain’.

Baxter’s shared one of the tracks from it, too. ‘Miami’, which you can watch the video for below. ‘Miami’ is a character conjured up by Dury – a person who’s deluded by heartbreak. “The night chef; the Shadow Licker; the glassy dude; Mr Maserati.” You’d want to be his mate if he didn’t sound like such a prick.

Introducing the track, Baxter says: “He thinks he’s got swagger, he thinks he’s someone, but he’s not.”

Baxter Dury plays this year’s End of the Road festival, and London’s KOKO on November 29.

The cheapest we can afford to do this for works out at £3 per month for UK subscribers, charged yearly.

If that seems like a bit of a punt, you can pay-as-you-go for £4 per month and cancel any time you like. European and world plans are available too, at the lowest rate we can afford.
