Watch video now + European tour announced
Last month, Peter Perrett – former frontman of The Only Ones – announced he will release Humanworld, his second album since signing to Domino, on June 7th. Today, Perrett is pleased to unveil a second track from the album alongside a video directed by Douglas Hart and Steve Gullick.
On Humanworld, there are songs about love, some peppered with optimism, others crushingly pessimistic and the old caustic side of Perrett the realist is everywhere, but he’s tempered, not mellowed his sentiments and delivers many crucial life lessons, not least of which is the stark “I’ve got to learn to take my own advice” on ‘Once Is Enough’.
Having already announced a UK headline tour including London’s Scala, a string of European dates have now been added for the summer. Peter’s band includes his guitar and bass playing sons Jamie and Peter Jr, drummer Jake Woodward, Jenny Maxwell (Microkorg synthesiser, viola, BVs) and Lauren Moon (keys, drums, BVs).
Following the years of possibly having too much fun, Peter Perrett is in the process of rebuilding himself, his family, and his art. Working with his sons and fronting another great band, he’s firmly back on track. Humanworld features a production credit for Peter’s son Jamie who also contributes a song to the album (‘Master of Destruction’); and the story of knitting a family back together following a history of chaos and addiction now takes a step closer to centre stage.
