Carl BarÃ¢t releases his eponymous debut solo album on 4th October via his own imprint Arcady Record. The first single â€˜Run With The Boysâ€™ will be out the same day and he has written his first book â€˜Threepenny Memoirâ€™ published by Harper Collins on 30th September. Recorded in London and mixed in New York, the result is a departure from Carlâ€™s previous releases, but maintains his ear for melody. The album allowed him to work with new people and try new musical ideas.
The result is a very honest and heartfelt record, with upbeat tales of friendship and laments for lost love. Opening track â€˜The Magusâ€™ has a magical music box feel to it, â€˜Carve My Nameâ€™ is awash with strings and â€˜So Long My Loverâ€™ is uplifting and joyful, despite being about the end of a relationship.
Carlâ€™s book â€˜Threepenny Memoirâ€™ is a collection of stories and reminisces from his life.
Written in themed chapters, he talks of his love of London, his heroes, his adventures in theatreland and of course, the highs and lows of being in a band like The Libertines.
