2009 sees the release of Urthboy’s much anticipated third solo album, Spitshine. Hellsong seems to be the first single of the album and is already out. The film clip has already been made ‘Indie Clip of the Week’ on Rage. The animation is comprised of more than 7000 hand-drawn images and was put together by Broken Yellow, working in collaboration with artists from opposite corners of the globe. The clip was also directed by jtv’s own Brendan Doyle.
The single launched at the Vanguard on May 20. Expect to see tour dates soon.
Spitshine will see Urthboy team up again with producer buddies Count Bounce from TZU and Hermitude, while Hellsong features the honey voice of fellow Herd compatriot Jane Tyrell. Expect Spitshine to drop in August, so in the meantime enjoy Hellsong, as catchy, soulful and groovy as anything Urthboy’s released in the past. If you join Urthies mailing list you will receive a free download of Hellsong.
