EUROS CHILDS AND NORMAN BLAKE, AKA JONNY, ANNOUNCE DEBUT ALBUM DETAILS

Norman Blake and Euros Childs are pleased to announce details of their debut album together as Jonny. The self-titled, co-written album will be released on 31st January on Alsatian Records (Turnstile) preceded by single Candyfloss on the 17th January.

The album artwork (above) is also revealed to be the inspiration behind their unusual name. Blake came across the image on a friend’s website “and thought it would make a great record sleeve… and name for a band”. “Sleeve first, band-name after”, confirms Childs, “that’s always the best way”.

“Jonny” album track listing:

1. Wich is Wich

2. Candyfloss

3. Waiting Around For You

4. Goldmine

5. You Was Me

6. Circling The Sun

7. English Lady

8. The Goodnight

9. Bread

10. Cave Dance

11. I Want To Be Around You

12. I’ll Make Her My Best Friend

13. Never Alone

Inter-twining the musical DNA of two of Britain’s most gifted songwriters, Jonny’s debut album proclaims the advent of an irresistibly infectious new strain of psychedelic pop. To kick things off, Jonny are giving away a free, four-track download EP of non-album songs from today (Monday 1st November). Get it here -

Track listing:

1.Gloria
2.Beach Party
3.Continental
4. Michael Angelo (by 23rd Turnoff)

Blake’s Teenage Fanclub and Childs’ Gorky’s toured together in 1997, and when Blake contributed guitar and vocal harmonies to Gorky’s bitter-sweet How I Long To Feel That Summer In My Heart in 2001, Euros remembers “it just felt like he was part of the band… from that point on it always felt like we might do something together in the future, it just took a few years to actually get it organised”. Euros eventually made it up to Norman’s house in Glasgow in 2006 to record “what we thought was an EP”, and the duo played a handful of rapturously received live shows, before finally getting down to putting a whole album together early in 2010.
