Ebbene sì, l’album acustico a cui aveva accennato nella nostra intervista a marzo sta per lasciare il cantiere.
Il nuovo disco di Joey Cape si intitola Stitch Puppy e a quanto pare riprenderà la trama “oscura” iniziata con Hang, l’ultimo album dei Lagwagon (lo si può intendere già dalla copertina). La data di uscita è fissata per il 4 settembre, ovviamente per Fat Wreck Chords. Di seguito il comunicato del Caper e la tracklist!
I’m excited to be announcing the release of my new solo album Stitch Puppy. It’s been almost 5 years since the last solo full length was released so it feels long overdue. Stitch Puppy was inspired by a doll my daughter made me a few years back. It’s a sort of Victorian mourning doll. Stitch is my most prized possession. Put it this way, if my house were to burn down, after my family and the animals, Stitch would be top priority. My idea to wear his costume stems from years of thinking of him as some representation of purity, loss and the strength that follows. Stitch Puppy seems to be alone, which is the way it feels to mourn the loss someone you love or to be abandoned, stood up. We are all disappointed by life’s disloyalties and losses but somehow the wiser for them. We transform from victim to guide. We are witness to these things and the beauty in between. That’s it. That’s how I see Stitch Puppy. Not defeated. Simply the wise witness I aim to be.
