Debut Album 'Harsh, Final.' drops October 26th.

I'm pleased to announce the release of my debut solo album 'Harsh, Final.' which will be (quite obviously from the title of this posting), available to buy from October 26th from a number of places. Here's one of them. The album is distributed in the U.S. exclusively by those nice folks at Forced Exposure.

'Harsh, Final.' features cover artwork (see above) by the spectacular Manchester based artist Rachel Goodyear (2 Girls courtesy of private collection), and was mastered by Valgeir Sigurdsson (Bjork, Bonny Prince Billy, Ben Frost).

There's a nice first review of the album here on Canadian blog Monsieur Delire.

'A very strong debut effort from Manchester’s Danny Saul. I could describe him as a singer-songwriter, but his songs are so long (ten minutes and over) and so textural that he is better aproached from the experimental pop angle. David Sylvian and Ben Frost are good points of comparison, but personally, throughout the album, I’ve been thinking of Fovea Hex’s ethereal songs. I really like this CD. The cover of Hotpants Romance’s “Stop Escaping” is somewhat askew, even tucked at the tail end of the record, but that’s minor flaw.' - Monsieur Delire

Hopefully more to follow soon...
