Dennis EP

This 6-track EP includes a Christmas song, 3 covers (Daniel Johnston, The Exciters, The Beach Boys) and 2 previously unreleased tracks from his The Boombox Ballads album sessions. 

Co-written by
The Boombox Ballads collaborator Paul Jones, Black recalls, “It was written and recorded, like all good Christmas songs, in the height of summer. It was around the time of the Labour leadership debate and I had imagined Jeremy Corbyn as Father Christmas so it has a vaguely political message.”

Black explains the EP a little further:
“Dennis was the name I gave to my son before he was born. My wife wasn’t as keen as me so we went with something else. Each verse on ‘We Used To Call Him Dennis’ goes through a different name my wife and I considered. ‘Buzzard’ is my interpretation of an old-fashioned dance courtship song, if there is such a thing. The lyrics are different mating rituals which I imagine make up the dance steps.”
