Jack Henderson releases his new album ‘Where’s The Revolution’ on Fretsore Records.
Including single ‘Nobody Gets Hurt’, the new long-player comes nearly 20 years on from his debut, 2001’s ‘Cheap Tattoo’.
It also acts as a follow-up to his ‘Sharkey’s Parade’ EP from last year, and also released by Fretsore Records.
Self-recorded near Henderson’s hometown of Glasgow, the latest ten track release is available on CD plus stream and download.
During his two-decade long career, Henderson has recorded and performed in New York with Patti Smith’s producer and bass player, Tony Shanahan, and worked with Marc Ribot, (Tom Waits, Elvis Costello), Tony Garnier (Bob Dylan, Paul Simon), Jon Graboff (Ryan Adams, Sheryl Crow), David Mansfield (Bob Dylan, T-Bone Burnett, Bruce Hornsby) and Joan as Policewoman.
Of the album, the Glasgow-based songwriter says: “If necessity is the mother of invention then ‘Where’s The Revolution’ is largely the result of that confluence of necessity and invention.
“Sometimes limitations can be liberating and for this album I wanted to explore what would happen if I recorded, produced and more or less played everything myself whilst embracing those limitations, both physical and financial, head on.
“There was no overarching manifesto and I wanted to let the songs dictate their own course and allow the imposed imperfections to constitute the very soul of the record.”
