New single: 'Perfect'
Released by EMI Records on October 17th
'black:Acetate:' Out Now!
The first single to be lifted from John Cale's new album 'blackAcetate:' (released by
EMI Records October 3rd), 'Perfect' is our favourite Welshman getting heavy on the
electric guitar and rocking like a beast. There's also more than a touch of tongue in

'Perfect' is just one great track from the 13 found on 'blackAcetate:' It's an album
that's full of diversity and influences (current inspiration supplied by Dre, Doves &
Gorillaz) as you would expect from the man whose career output is never short of
Here's what's being said about 'blackAcetate:':
"..this is that rare thing, an album that shares new pleasures each time you hear it,
made by someone who's still excited by music, and is still capable of inspiring that
same excitement in his listeners." - MOJO
"Most hot young bands' debuts fall way short of the urgency, invention, eclecticism and
sonic adventurousness of this, the former Velvet's 22nd solo work." - Sunday Times
"...the most startling sound from a pop musician of his age in recent memory." - UNCUT
"World's coolest Welshman throws N.E.R.D-style funk rock and glam stomps into his ever
eclectic mix." - Time Out
"The art-rock legend gets influenced by the Neptunes and the results are fuggin'
brilliant." - NME
John Cale is expected to return to the UK for live shows in January.
