Badly Drawn Boy releases first new song in seven years


Badly Drawn Boy has returned with his first new single in seven years with the release of ‘Is This A Dream?’.

The new track, an upbeat indie number, arrives with a new animated video and marks Badly Drawn Boy’s first new material since the release of 2010’s It’s What I’m Thinking Pt.1 – Photographing Snowflakes.

“The song is a sound collage of chaos and confusion to reflect the ridiculous times we live in,” he said in a statement. “A deliberately cartoon-esque sonic poke in the eye, to those in whom we place trust, yet instead supply constant barrage of misinformation followed by bad decisions.”

To mark the new music, Badly Drawn Boy will also perform his first London show with a gig at the Roundhouse this weekend.

For now, though, enjoy the track.
