News: Kevin Nolan To Release Deluxe Edition of Fredrick & The Golden Dawn Album

Kevin Nolan Fredrick & The Golden Dawn album deluxe

Kevin Nolan - Last Days of Harry Carey

Info: Dublin artist Kevin Nolan is set to release a special deluxe edition of his formidable debut album, Fredrick & The Golden Dawn, with two extra live tracks on the 1st of July. The release comes ahead of a new documentary, Hum, about Nolan which will be premiered at the Irish Film Institute (IFI) later this year. Concurrently Nolan has put out a call to producers, musicians and writers to remix /reconstruct some of the tracks, lyrics and artwork on Fredrick, reworkings and interpretations, full details of which are outlined here on his website.

The album, which got a 9/10 review from The Last Mixed Tape and unanimous stellar reviews from all of Ireland's major music websites and publications, was a labour of love which was constructed by Nolan over a number of years.

Hot Press said: Nolan has carved out a world of strange characters and stunning sonic tapestries (...) 'Last Days Of Harry Carey' is a bombastic four minutes of blood and thunder that's worth the price of admission alone. The record takes the listener on a walk on the weird side, telling some diabolically good tales of love and death, spell-binding stuff.

"There’s no doubting Nolan’s ambition as he mixes gruff and declamatory Tom Waits/Nick Cave with softer instrumental interludes and a strain of theatrical musicality along the lines of Brecht/Weill/Lenya, as well as a rather odd but beautiful duet (Aubade) with Irish avant-pop singer Julie Feeney. (...) Impressive." - Tony Clayton-Lea, The Irish Times.
