(Update: Jan. 24, 2023: Dear Tommy is still unreleased and probably never will be.)
Looks like today’s another opportunity to go wild about more Italians Do It Better news. The label announced on its new website that by Valentine’s Day there will be a new Chromatics album called Dear Tommy.
The tracklist features “Shadow,” a Lynchian number familiar to anyone who has been visiting Johnny Jewel’s Soundcloud page recently. Versions of “Cherry” and “Camera,” originally heard on After Dark 2, also will appear on the record.
And on the topic of that new website: It looks gorgeous. It fits the dark and shiny 70s and 80s thriller film poster chic that has been on preview for anyone ordering new records or shirts from the label’s store. Basically, the art is stunningly brilliant. I’m obviously horrible at being objective with most of anything regarding IDIB.
