Simone Felice has announced details of his self titled debut solo album, set for release on April 2nd 2012 via Reveal Records. To celebrate this announcement, Simone has made one of his brand new album tracks 'New York Times' available for free download.
As the former drummer, writer and vocalist of The Felice Brothers, and creator of folk outfit The Duke & The King, Simone Felice has been involved with many group projects but this record sees him establishing himself as a lone artist. The album was self-produced with help from Ben Lovett (Mumford & Sons) and was recorded in locations chosen specifically to match the ghostly, gospel-like feel that runs throughout the record. Members of Mumford & Sons guest on the lead single 'You & I Belong', whilst The Felice Brothers and a girls' choir from Simone's hometown in the Catskill Mountains (New York State), contribute to the album opener 'Hey Bobby Ray'.
