Closing a ten year gap since his last major album, Damian Rice is finally back with a new album, My Favourite Faded Fantasy, due out November 10th. ::PraiseHands:: And today, we're getting a preview of what's to come by way of the official video for the first single from the album, "I Don't Want To Change You". When Damian Rice's breakout album O came out in 2004, I was 16 (put down your goddamn calculators) and primed for feeling all the feelings that that album set out to make people feel. Basically, I was primed, willing, and ready to have my emotions gloriously manipulated by the brooding, fun-sized, Irish dreamsicle. And it was exquisite. So you can imagine how heartbroken (or rather, how annoyingly unheartbroken) I was when Damian Rice left us without a new album for a solid decade.
These are the only two things I really have to say about any of this:
- I really, sincerely missed Damian Rice and think he's very special and am super excited that we're getting new music from him.
- If someone doesn't hurry up (with my damn croissant) and make a mash-up of My Favourite Faded Fantasy and My Dark Twisted Fantasy, I'm basically about to (ノ ゜Д゜)ノ ︵ ┻━┻
