Long Tall Jefferson has taken a long road to delivering his debut album. Described as a ‘wanderer by trade’, he’s collected the songs which make up I Want My Honey Back during travels which have seen him living in Berlin, Brussels, Zurich and Leipzig while criss-crossing the roads which wind between them. Along the way he picked up an old 4-track cassette recorder in Berlin and used it to record the nine songs which make up this album, giving it a distinctly analogue feel. The record will be released on Friday, available either on vinyl or on vintage postcards (no, really – they come with a download code, which can be used twice so you can post the album to a friend as a gift). To whet your appetite, we can bring you the premiere of the track ‘Pharaoh’, which was inspired by the uprisings in Tunisia and Egypt, which became known as the Arab Spring.
