Rustin Man is the project of Paul Webb, the former bassist of 1980s icons Talk Talk. Webb is releasing a new solo album as Rustin Man, Drift Code, this Friday via Domino. Now he has shared one more pre-release single from it, “The World’s In Town.” Listen below.

Previously he shared its first single, “Vanishing Heart,” via a video for the song (it was one of our Songs of the Week). Then he shared another song from the album, “Judgement Train,” also via a video.

In 2002 he released one album under the name Rustin Man, a collaborative record with Beth Gibbons of Portishead entitled Out of Season. Webb has been working on Drift Code since Out of Season, recording it in a barn next to his home in Essex, England, while also raising his two daughters with his wife Sam.

Webb had this to say about the album in a previous press release: “Through the necessity of recording over a long period of time, the album has a kind of unfixed or uprooted quality. As if the songs belong nowhere so hopefully belong everywhere.”

Of the album title he had this to say: “I called the album Drift Code as it’s an oxymoron, a code is something fixed, but our instinct is to wander, to drift. I like the idea that life is a puzzle that can’t be solved because the answer is always changing.”
