Tracklist: Allo Darlin' - Darren

A low-key download and picture disc only (from August 22nd) one-off while Elizabeth and co finalise an album for early 2012 release, and it's a concept single! The A-side is dedicated to Darren Hayman and features guitarist Paul Rains' drawing of him on the cover; the B-side is a cover of The French (Hayman and John Morrison)'s Wu Tang Clan with a Hayman depiction of both that band and this as integrated. As for the record it shows how even further energetic and effervescent they've got after a year of touring, thrusting forward with purpose. As often with Morris it's about the community power of music, references all sorts of classic indiepop and features a triumphant chorus of voices towards the end.
