Baxter Dury, son of Ian Dury from The Blockheads, is ready to release his fifth album on October 27th. Delusional and hopeful. Loving but injured. Full of vitriol though brimming with forgiveness. Intensely personal yet brutally open. Baxter Dury’s fifth album is both a private meditation into the very real relationship breakdown he experienced over the last year and his most ambitious and biggest work to date. Prince Of Tears is not just a title, it’s a mind-set, a melodrama, a catharsis, a comedy… a record.

Dury recruits several vocal collaborators into the Prince Of Tears’ retinue, illuminating some of the album’s dark corners. Long-term foil Madelaine Hart returns to provide her melancholic yet knowing backing vocals to several songs, Rose Elinor Dougall adds a sinister edge to Porcelain, while Sleaford Mods’ Jason Williamson enthusiastically chimes in on Almond Milk.
