Lloyd Cole / new album ‘Guesswork’

Lloyd Cole will release his a new studio album, Guesswork, in the summer.

According to Cole, his 11th solo long-player was recorded “mostly in my attic” and the album contains eight new songs, two of which are co-written with his old bandmate in the Commotions, Blair Cowan (who last collaborated with Lloyd on 2010’s Broken Record). The music on the record is played by Cowan, Neil Clark (also an ex-Commotion), Fred Maher and Lloyd.

SDE readers may smile at the name of the last track – it’s is called ‘The Loudness Wars’. Whether it’s *that* loudness war, remains to be seen.

The album isn’t out for a while yet; 26 July 2019, to be exact. A UK and Ireland tour will follow in the autumn (details at on Lloyd’s website).

    A new Lloyd Cole album is always welcome at Golden Age Towers.

    Love the cover, that’s how our hero looks these days.

    Why is there a portrait of Francis Bacon on the cover?

  12. Richard says:

    Looking forward to hearing too but ,ouch, that is a horrible painting of him for the cover, not even a good likeness!
