Graham writes concept album
Graham Coxon has spoken to
BBC 6 Music about his new studio album, which he
claims to be a concept record.
"It's about a man who is born in um, possibly the fifties.
Grows up, meets a girl, gets married, then has to go to
war and gets really knackered up and then has a divorce
and then goes mad and then er dies and goes to heaven."
Speaking at the launch of
Crisis Consequences [link down] charity campaign, he hoped the
album would be released in the summer.
"I'm going to record in a couple of weeks and then release
it really and that’s it. I am just gonna sit and wait for
the sun to come out."
