Greg Dulli – “Pantomima”

Afghan Whigs leader Greg Dulli has announced that he’ll release his first proper solo album, Random Desire, next year. Dulli has broken off on his own before, mainly with the side project the Twilight Singers — there’s also a 2005 album, Amber Headlights, attributed to him that was cobbled together from tracks he abandoned after the death of his friend Ted Demme.

But Random Desire will be Dulli’s first concerted effort at a solo album, 10 new songs that he wrote over the last couple years since the Whigs’ 2017 album In Spades, a time period that also included the death of that band’s guitarist Dave Rosser.

Today, Dulli is sharing the album’s first single and album opener, “Pantomima.” Listen to it below.
