Badly Drawn Boy releases his new single Silent Sigh through XL Recordings on March 25.
The track is taken from Damons original soundtrack to the film adaptation of Nick Hornbys best selling novel About A Boy.
The album, released April 8, was recorded in Los Angeles with producer and Bong Load Records founder Tom Rothrock (Beck, Elliot Smith, etc) and is Damon Gough's first major release since the million selling, Mercury Music Prize winning, Hour Of The Bewilderbeast.
Badly Drawn Boy became involved with the film at the request of Nick Hornby.
I wanted to get on with my own record. But I met them (the films creators), read the book and started to get a good feeling, explains Gough.
The soundtrack was written in its entirety by Badly Drawn Boy including eight new compositions and all the incidental music.
The first offering from the new album was Donna And Blitzen - a limited edition 7 Mass single release late last year, which sold out the day it went on sale.
The film About A Boy starring Hugh Grant, Toni Collete and Rachel Weisz and directed by Chris and Paul Weitz (American Pie/Antz) is due for release at the end of APRIL.
Meanwhile Badly Drawn Boy has already began recording the follow up to Hour of Bewilderbeast in Los Angeles.
Ive got a clear picture of where the next record is going; explains Gough.
I want to plug in the electric guitar a bit more. Its already feeling like a collection of songs that really work together
