Last month, we brought you downloads of two new Robyn Hitchcock songs — the latest in his ‘Phantom 45s’ series — plus a video for one of them, the KT Tunstall-featuring ‘There Goes the Ice.’ Now we can present the second clip, a pub-style hootenanny for the song ‘Twitch 4 Sam Surfer.’
Robyn Hitchcock this week announced he is recording a new album — provisionally titled ‘File Under Pop’ — that’s being eyed for a January release, but, in the meantime, he’s giving away two “interim tracks” as free downloads, including one recorded with singer-songwriter KT Tunstall singing harmonies.
