Hugh Cornwell / Monster

New album features bonus disc of Stranglers re-recordings

Hugh Cornwell / Monster new album


Hugh Cornwell will issue a new album Monster in October.

The ten-track long-player features songs written about various people including his 98-year old mother (La Grande Dame), Lou Reed (Mr. Leather), 1970s stunt biker Evel Knievel (Pure Evel) and model-maker and animator Ray Harryhausen (the title track Monster).

Cornwell says these are people “who have defied categorisation,” adding, “I’ve spent my whole life trying to defy categorisation. If someone wants to put me into some sort of a box, I’ll do my best to defy it. You could call it being obstreperous, but it’s also got something to do with being drawn to people who are dichotomous.”

If you are on the fence about a new Cornwell album then a ‘carrot’ comes in the form of a bonus CD (or bonus vinyl LP), called Restoration, which features a collection of re-recorded acoustic versions Stranglers hits including No More Heroes and Always the Sun.

Monster will be released on 5 October via Sony. Cornwell will be touring the UK throughout November.
