Having established himself in Welsh riot starters Trampolene and riding shotgun in Peter Doherty’s band the Puta Madres, Jack Jones has announced his self-titled debut solo album.

“I’m sure we all try to slay the beast, conquer the madman and feed the angel living inside us. But I think you can only abuse the body and the mind for so long before it says “No More!” And it humbles you. That’s when you have to make a choice. Is it the end or the beginning?," Jones says of the new single, "Breathe".

"The idea of this song was written after my first panic attack - at a time when I didn’t care about having a career in music or even being a writer anymore, I just prayed to be okay and to make it through the day. Luckily, sometimes, out of the darkest places, glimmers can appear, and that’s what this song is…a chapter of resilience, finding a way to keep going, finding a way to believe in a future, finding a way to BREATHE. It saved me and I would hope it may help others too.”

For the Breathe video Jack Jones decided to go into training to be the first Welsh astronaut, his trip to the moon (in his head) is planned for the first half of the 21st Century. The video was directed by filmmaker Barnaby Fairley. Speaking of the video, Jones adds: “Who wouldn't want to roam the streets of London in a space suit…it felt weirdly freeing.”

Jack Jones’s is also releasing the new book Tour Diaries’ Volume 1 featuring his time with Trampolene, The Libertines and Peter Doherty & The Puta Madres. He will embark on a UK tour in November, in support of the forthcoming album.
