Berlin based Scottish singer-songwriter and producer Rudi Zygadlo is set to release his second full-length entitled Tragicomedies.
The album will be released on September 17th via Planet Mu and it follows his 2010’s debut Great Western Laymen.
Ahead of the release, Zygadlo dropped last week the lead single ‘Melopomene’, a beautiful ballad named after a Greek Muse. The single is available digitally and on vinyl, and it features the B-side ‘Arrows’.
‘Melopomene’ “works a wonderful alchemy with acoustic instrumentation and dramatic suture-like edits with a gauzy side-compressed production, over which a tempered tale of love lost unravels among Rudi’s fragile harmonies”, according to the issued press release. “The track builds to a middle passage, as piano and accordion duel with a beautiful grace in an almost neo-classical passage before the penny drops on the outro and the sadness hinted at before dramatically plays out in the song’s chorus.”
‘Melopomene’ comes with a video, directed by Nick Rutter. Check it out beneath.
