WHERE YOU’RE MEANT TO BE – UPDATED WITH MORE SCREENINGS IN SCOTlAND!

Almost three whole years since the project began, the Where You’re Meant To Be film is finally finished, and will premiere on the 19th of February 2016 at none other than Glasgow’s legendary Barrowland Ballroom. Not only are we screening the documentary, we’ll also be reuniting the band that features in the film and played on May 2014 tour of Scotland – Jenny, Stevie, Michael John, James and me will be performing after the film. THE PREMIERE IS NOW SOLD OUT. If you’re in Glasgow and would still like to see the film, the Glasgow Film Festival are doing a second matinee screening on February 24th – no live performance at this one, sorry, but it will be followed by a Q&A with me and director Paul Fegan.

Also announced: PREVIEW TOUR OF SCOTLAND! BEfore the film’s official, full release in summer, we’re taking the film on tour around Scotland and revisiting the places we visited on tour in 2014. These dates will include a film screening and an acoustic live performance from yours truly. The dates are:

DILF_77 WOULD LIKE TO CHAT EP

Bill Wells & Me have a new EP called DILF_77 Would LIke To Chat, which consists of songs we thought were far too cheerful to go on the albums. The lead track, DILF_77 Would Like To Chat, is disco tune about mid-life flirting, and there’s also a jazzy one about a baby, a pop song about a morning after, and – no joke – a calypso song about being drunk and losing your keys. The EP will be available digitally and streamingly on 16th October at all the usual places, but for those of you who like to hold things in your hands you can also buy a limited edition CD which includes an exclusive extended mix of the lead track and another, brand new, exclusive track. Like so:

Digital / Streaming Version
1. DILF_77 Would Like To Chat
2. Danse Profane
3. Back To You
4. Fuck The Sun

Limited Edition CD Version
1. DILF_77 Would Like To Chat
2. Fuck The Sun
2. Danse Profane
3. Back To You
5. Oh, To Sing A Happy Song!

The CD will be available only in independent record shops, at gigs, and online. You can pre-order it now HERE, and listen to the lead track above. I told you it was disco.

THE MOST IMPORTANT PLACE IN THE WORLD

The second album by Bill Wells and Yours Truly is called The Most Important Place In The World and will be released on March 16th 2015. You can hear a track, This Dark Desire, below. You can also buy this song right now – or get it immediately with the album pre-order – on iTunes HERE.

You can read the full press release and pre-order the album HERE. It will come in a limited, heavyweight vinyl LP edition – with a bonus 4-track 12” EP, a lyrics and sheet music 12x12 booklet, a hymn sheet, and all audio content in 320kbps MP3s – and, of course, CD and download too, and will be available on streaming platforms in May. As you may know, I’m not a big fan of streaming; it’s fundamentally a sweatshop – the consumer loves it and the shops get rich, but those who actually craft the product get paid next to nothing. But I can’t deny it seems to be the future, so while I’m happy to have my stuff available on streaming platforms, we – Bill, Chemikal Underground and I – agreed to hold back this album until later in the year. Our priority audience will always be those who want to buy our music, and it’s only fair that these fans should have exclusive access to it for a period of time. I understand that some of you may pay a monthly streaming subscription fee and feel left out – if so, the good news is that we’ve priced our digital album insanely low to help balance this out. The MP3 version of the album is only £4.99 (see link above), which is the price of a pint of Peroni in my local – and, quite frankly, if you don’t think an album’s worth the price of a city centre pint, then music is absolutely, irreversibly fucked. Indeed, think of it as though you’re actually buying us a pint, or I suppose a half pint each – but even that’s misleading because that assumes we’ll personally get £4.99 from a digital sale, which of course we won’t, so it’s more like a packet of crisps each to accompany the pints we’ve already bought ourselves. And I fucking love crisps.

No tour dates planned as yet, but they’re on the way.

There will be more songs to preview online soon too, and maybe even a launch party somewhere special ... watch this space! (Or better yet, follow me on Twitter.)
