Chromatics have released a brand new album, their first in seven years and surprise, surprise, it’s not the much-talked about and promised album Dear Tommy which was pushed back and delayed regularly since it was first announced.
One of the stories around the album is that Johnny Jewel “destroyed all physical copies of the album – apparently 15,000 CDs and 10,000 vinyl copies following a near-death experience whilst swimming in 2015 and he wasn’t happy with album he made.”
Anyway, we have a new Chromatics record! It’s called Closer To Grey and is their seventh album according to the band (so they are still counting Dear Tommy in absentia) featuring all new tracks, their first since Kill For Love.
