Last year Doves’ announced hiatus—while they recharge their batteries after 24 years together. Leadman Jimi Goodwin is doing his best to fill the gap with a don’t-all-it-a-solo-project project. As Goodwin told BBC 6, “I’ve been writing, I’m loathed to call it a solo record but it probably is… “It’s shaping up to be like a mad mix tape, no pause for breath, no gaps between songs, going from 140BPM carnival style freak out to a folk track then hitting a hip hopesque beat.”

The album will feature a collaboration with a familiar face. “Me and (Guy) Garvey have always threatened to write together and we finally got a chance to do that in the summer at Realworld studios” says Goodwin.I came down for a weekend and we finally got round to touching on a couple of tracks that we’d sent each other, we made progress on a couple of songs that will almost definitely make this record whatever it is I am making.”
