Neil Hannon’s Divine Comedy are set to follow-up their acclaimed ‘Foreverland’ (2016) with the release of new album ‘Office Politics’ on June 7th.
“It has synthesizers. And songs about synthesizers,” Neil says. “But don’t panic. It also has guitars, orchestras, accordions, and songs about love and greed.” But Office Politics central characters are the machines. Or ‘Infernal Machines’ as one track rages.
“I do try to make normal records,” Neil says with a smile. ”But it always seems to wander off into odd territories.”
Office Politics contains 16 tracks including new single Queuejumper.
