Francis Lung has announced a new spoken word EP, ‘Short Stories’.
Set for release on 23rd September, the news comes alongside a first single, ‘2p Machine’, which you can check out below.
The former WU LYF member has moved to France and had a daughter in the past year, with his wife and collaborator, Coralie. “Those first months following the birth of my daughter were a daze – the days were joyful, but the nights were long,” Lung explains. “Once I’m up, I’m up, and I could never get back to sleep after feeding or changing the baby. In my semi-delirious state, I would lie awake in bed making up stories in my head to pass the time. ‘2p Machine’ was the first of these, which originated from memories of being a kid on holiday in the arcades on Blackpool Pleasure Beach.”
