Hitchcock Sings in English for Norwegian Ears

If you haven't heard any of the new Robyn Hitchcock yet, you will want to listen to the two songs below. These lush compositions continue a string of great works by the 58 year old. You will be able to find them on 'Tromsø, Kaptein,' a record Hitchcock says he "sung in English for Norwegian ears." It will ship beginning May 3 on, naturally, the Norwegian label Hype City Recordings. If you preorder from Hitchcock's site now, you will receive a digital download of the album immediately. 'Tromsø, Kaptein' continues a prolific streak of albums, free downloads and other projects that, in my opinion, marks the most interesting five-year period of his career. If you're an old fan of his and have lost touch through the years, do yourself a favor and at least get 'Goodnight Oslo.' It made my top 20 albums of 2009.
