Damon Gough, sole proprietor of Badly Drawn Boy, has announced his forthcoming album It’s What I’m Thinking Part One: Photographing Snowflakes, the first disc in a trilogy, will be released on Oct. 12.
The End Records will release the trilogy, which is titled It’s What I’m Thinking.
Gough’s first non-soundtrack album since 2006’s Born in the U.K., Snowflakes marks the first installment in a three-piece body encompassing a recent surge of creativity. He credits this intense inventive streak to his catalytic work writing the soundtrack to U.K. TV series The Fattest Man in Britain.
Badly Drawn Boy kicks off a UK tour in October. Expect a stateside tour to follow later in the fall.
The record’s single, “Too Many Miracles,” is out now on iTunes Aug. 24.
