Yesterday we reported that Camera Obscura frontwoman Tracyanne Campbell had announced Tracyanne & Danny, a new project with Danny Coughlan (who has previously released music as Crybaby), and we shared a teaser trailer for the project. Now Tracyanne & Danny have announced their self-titled debut album and shared its lovely first single, “Home & Dry.” Tracyanne & Danny is due out May 25 via Merge. Below is “Home & Dry,” followed by the album’s tracklist and cover art. They have also announced some tour dates, which are below too (as well as the teaser trailer again).

Camera Obscura understandably haven’t had much activity since the tragic and untimely passing due to cancer of founding member and keyboardist Carey Lander in 2015. The band’s last album was 2013’s Desire Lines. Campbell is from Glasgow, whereas the London-born Coughlan is Bristol-based. They were introduced by mutual friends in 2013 and Campbell liked his music as Crybaby and asked him to open for Camera Obscura. They worked on songs together, but the project was shelved for Campbell to focus on Desire Lines. After Camera Obscura went on hiatus the duo revisited the project and recorded the album at Clashnarrow, Edwyn Collins’ studio in the Scottish Highlands. Collins co-produced the album along with engineer and multi-instrumentalist Sean Read (Dexys Midnight Runners), using Collins’ vintage gear. A press release says mutual influences on Tracyanne & Danny include “The Roches, Dion, Lou Reed, The Flamingos, Serge Gainsbourg, Santo & Johnny, and The Style Council.”

Campbell says in a press release that the album is “melodic, musical, and murdery. It’s not a duet record. We’ve tried our best to marry our voices, songs, and melodies.”

Of “Home & Dry” Campbell has this to say: “It’s about the movement of time, the inevitability of things not staying the same. Just when you think things are sorted and ok, something changes and they no longer are.”

As reported yesterday, Tracyanne & Danny have also launched a website and Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram pages.
