JON FRATELLI: single release and live shows!

JON FRATELLI’S DEBUT SOLO SINGLE: “SANTO DOMINGO” TO BE RELEASED ON APRIL 11th ‘11
LIVE SHOWS INCLUDING SPECIAL GUEST BILLING AT ROGER DALTREY TEENAGE CANCER TRUST ROYAL ALBERT HALL SHOW, ‘HIGHLANDS & ISLANDS’ TOUR AND ‘LIVE AT LEEDS’

* Jon Fratelli will release his first proper solo single ‘Santo Domingo’ on the Island label on April 11th. Taken from his forthcoming new album “Psycho Jukebox”, it is at once strangely familiar, lyrically obtuse and so catchy it’ll make your head swim. It follows the free download of ‘Rhythm Doesn’t Make You A Dancer’ which is available now from www.jonfratelli.co.uk

* Jon Fratelli’s debut solo album is called Psycho Jukebox and like any jukebox worth its salt it’s chock full of the kind of solid gold easy action that makes you want to throw the windows wide to annoy the neighbours. Psycho Jukebox is brimful of melody, pop-psychedelia, classic ’60s-tinged pop, and characters whose lives are lived in a twilight world of ambition and failure, triumph and loss. Fans of The Fratellis will not be disappointed!

* Says Jon: “The chorus of ‘Santo Domingo’ is something I’ve had in my back pocket for a while now. It’s that instant thing – how quickly can you grab someone’s attention?! I’m delighted with how it’s turned out. It’s one of my favourites on the album.”

* Santo Domingo is the capital of the Dominican Republic

* Psycho Jukebox was recorded at The Sound Factory in Los Angeles with producer Tony Hoffer (Beck , Air, Depeche Mode), who first worked with Jon in 2006 on The Fratellis’ debut album, Costello Music, which featured ‘Chelsea Dagger’, ‘Henrietta’ and ‘Flathead’, and established Jon as a writer of crunching, dynamic rock songs, clever lyrics populated with intriguing, Kinks-y – and sometimes kinky – characters, and an uncommonly sharp ear for melody.

*Jon Fratelli and his band (featuring the one and only Mince Fratelli on drums and acoustic guitar!) have confirmed a ‘Highlands & Islands’ tour and will appear at London’s ‘This Feeling’ club aswell as the ‘Live At Leeds’ festival. The full set of shows is:
