KING CREOSOTE & JON HOPKINS RELEASE NEW EP, HONEST WORDS, ON 19TH SEPTEMBER 2011
King Creosote and Jon Hopkins | 02/08/11
Pre-order 'John Taylor's Month Away / Missionary' 7" HERE
Following the Mercury nomination for their first collaborative album Diamond Mine, King Creosote & Jon Hopkins can now reveal details of their next EP, Honest Words. Featuring a reworking of album track 'Bats In The Attic' as well as two brand new songs, the EP will be available on 19th September on 12” vinyl (DS048T) and via digital download (DS048D).
Lyrically, there's more soul-searching than Fife folklore on the EP follow up to Diamond Mine - the teasing out of the truth in an obfuscating lyric, or contemplating the truth as laid bare by feline nature and star fields. The music underneath follows these thoughts into more expansive, crystalline realms, far away from the harbours and tea-rooms where they began.
