Peter Perrett (The Only Ones)

Peter Perrett returns once again with Humanworld; his second album since signing to Domino, it will be released on June 7th.

One of the recent past’s most unexpected come-back stories, Peter Perrett – former frontman of The Only Ones – resurfaced in 2017 with How The West Was Won, an album that saw him chart in the UK, star on BBC Newsnight, sell out rooms at Electric Ballroom and Islington Assembly Hall, and collect accolades across the board.

The first song to be shared from Humanworld is the album’s opening track, ‘I Want Your Dreams’.

In this new chapter, Peter continues to dissect romance and politics with his trademark sense of sardonic wit and wry humour, if not with more vigour even and a palpable sense of immediacy. Peter adds, “This record has got more urgency and the songs are more concise. Don’t like words such as progression but I hope this is texturally and sonically more interesting than How The West Was Won.”

Peter’s band includes his guitar and bass playing sons Jamie and Peter Jr, drummer Jake Woodward, Jenny Maxwell (Microkorg synthesiser, viola, BVs) and Lauren Moon (keys, drums, BVs) – a tight-knit bunch who have honed this album and the previous one with choice live performances here and in Europe.
