Darwin Deez returns, synths and guitars in tow, with news of a new album, a new single, and a US/UK/European tour.
"The World's Best Kisser" is the first track to be lifted from his comeback album, 10 Songs That Happened When You Left Me With My Stupid Heart.
Continuing his signature synth sound, Darwin Deez also reignites the contrast between his light melodies and romantic lyrics.
The multi-talented musician also created the video for his new track, and has finessed his individuality as an artist since his 2015 album Double Down.
Speaking about the lead single, Darwin Deez explained the new track is, "a reflection on the mystery of attraction and the attraction of mysteries. After writing the song, I learned via Joseph Campbell of Thomas Mann’s concept of "erotic irony”: that flaws/imperfections are what make a person identifiable within a piece of devotional art. And so to write a love song that is truly about a specific person is to write something that cuts the person down to size a bit. Which is paradoxical but true—that in order to glorify someone in a love song, you might point out their defects.”
Darwin Deez commences his tour on 20 September in Antwerp, and closes it on 11 November in Boston.
