Baxtex Dury Shares New Track “Slumlord”

Announces New Album The Night Chancers Due Out 3/20 On Heavenly Recordings

Baxter Dury is pleased to announce he will be releasing his brand new album The Night Chancers on March 20th, 2020 through Heavenly Recordings. The album was co-produced by long time collaborator Craig Silvey (Arcade Fire, John Grant, Arctic Monkeys) and Baxter, and was recorded at Hoxa studios West Hampstead in May 2019. In addition to this news Baxter has shared the first cut from the record, titled “Slumlord“, and its accompanying video. Watch and listen HERE.

Baxter will also be embarking on his biggest UK tour so far, in April 2020, with a headline London show at Kentish Town Forum on April 22nd. All dates are listed below.

From thrilling affairs that dissolve into sweaty desperation (Night Chancers) to the absurd bloggers, fruitlessly clinging to the fag ends of the fashion set (Sleep People), via soiled real life (Slumlord) social media – enabled stalkers (I’m not Your Dog) and new day, sleep – deprived optimism (Daylight), the record’s finely drawn vignettes, are all based on the corners of world Dury has visited.

Baxter says “Night Chancers is about being caught out in your attempt at being free”, it’s about someone leaving a hotel room at three in the morning. You’re in a posh room with big Roman taps and all that, but after they go suddenly all you can hear is the taps dripping, and all you can see the debris of the night is around you. Then suddenly a massive party erupts, in the room next door. This happened to me and all I could hear was the night chancer, the hotel ravers”.
