Colonel Mustard & The Dijon 5 release their sophomore long-player, aptly entitled ‘The Difficult Number 2’, via Button Up Records.

It’s the follow-up to 2014 debut album, ‘Party To Make Music To Party To Make Music To Party To Make Music To Party To 1‘.

The new album was produced by Paul Gallagher – front of house engineer for synth-pop pioneers Chvrches – and features guests ranging from Larry Love (Alabama 3) to Gavin Mitchell (Still Game).

Included on the album are singles ‘G.T.’ – championed by BBC 6 Music’s Amy Lamé – and its follow-up ‘Ted Dancin‘, which reached No.7 in the Scottish Charts.

Also among the 12 tracks is single ‘This Is Your House‘, inspired by Glasgow nightclub The Arches, and which featured dance music icon Mary Kiani and Dopesick Fly frontman Ant Thomaz – the EP also including remixes by Micky Modelle, Mickey 9s, the Yellow Movement’s Mark DjFive Lang, and antipodean producer Steve Peach.

Available as a digital download, or on vinyl or CD, the album gets its launch via a live stream from The Barras Market/Barrowland Ballroom on Saturday May 1st – , with £1 from every ticket sold going to the Trees For Life Charity.

The show, an interactive stream, is part of the market’s centenary celebrations – will be the act’s fifth appearance at the venue after the venue inducted them into the Barrowland Hall of Fame last year.

John McMustard, aka the Colonel, says of the release: “There’s no filler. Every song works well individually, but as a whole the album takes you on a musical journey into the different genres that we love.

“What’s remained is the spirit of unity and community that lies at the heart of all the music we make. Gals’ studio is tied to the Castlemilk Youth Complex so we’ve even had the local kids’ choir in singing on a couple of tunes which is brilliant.”
