Anathema’s Daniel Cavanagh confirms new solo album
Daniel Cavanagh releases new solo album Monochrome in October - listen to lead track The Exorcist
Anathema lead songwriter Daniel Cavanagh has confirmed the release of his solo album Monochrome, and streamed lead track The Exorcist – listen to it above.
The record arrives on October 13 via Kscope, following a run of Anathema UK dates next month.
Cavanagh says: “The album has a late night, candlelit feeling, evoking the light of dusk as the summer sun sinks below the horizon, setting the scene for thoughts and meditations that many people will relate to.”
He adds of The Exorcist: “It was considered so good by Anathema that the rest of the band would have made this the centrepiece of an album. Taking it from the band was not an easy decision – but I’m glad I did!”
Monochrome features guest appearances from Anneke van Giersbergen and Anna Phoebe, and Cavanagh played almost everything else himself. The result is described as “a deeply reflective and personal offering, inspired by internal feelings of love and loss.”
