The album announcement is paired with the release of new track Lord of Misrule. The album hits stores January 31st 2020 and sees Almond collaborate with Ivor Novello winning Chris Braide (pictured above).

The pair collaborate on thirteen original songs, the tracklist of which you can peruse below:

  9. Dreaming of Sea
  10. When the Stars are Gone

  12. Lord of Misrule
  13. The Crows Eyes Have Turned Blue

Almond’s typical moody atmospheric titles feel prevalent in the likes of Hollywood Forever, Giallo and When the Stars are Gone, potentially tapping into themes like decaying macabre Hollywood glamour. Lord of Misrule delivers a blend of Almond’s vaudeville stylings with a gaudy medieval glamour.
