about

Danger Island is the debut solo album from singer-songwriter MOLE. It has been five years in the making, and is finally due for release on 17 August 2018.

The album includes a stack of new songs – ballads, boogaloos, torch songs, tone poems – as well as a handful of older songs that never got a fair shake in the studio. Replete with rich, intricate string and brass arrangements, tuned percussion, and an array of beautifully understated guest performances, Danger Island is a kaleidoscopic jumble of experiments, fantasies and miniature symphonies.

A lot of brilliant people contributed to Danger Island, including just about everyone from MOLE’s previous bands, Marseille Figs and The Jupiter Band. Its roster of guests includes people from Field Music, Pumarosa, The Rails, The Pretenders, Cinematic Orchestra, Gallon Drunk, Down I Go, The Pogues, Rum Buffalo, Fine Print, Small Hours and Kidnap Alice. It also features extensive contributions from pianist Louis Vause (Madness, Graham Coxon) and double bass legend John Edwards.

Danger Island is being released in a deluxe double LP edition, in a lovely gatefold sleeve with lyrics booklet and download card included, as well as a single-CD edition in a six-panel digifile.
