Year Of The Rat

Badly Drawn Boy has never made a bad album so I have high hopes for One Plus One Is One, which finally gets a US release next week. It’ll have two tracks exclusive to the US version. One of them is called “Don’t Ask Me I’m Only The President.”

The first single is available as a free MP3:
Badly Drawn Boy – “Year Of The Rat”

You can also click here to watch (in Real format) the cutesy Monkmus-directed video. It’s “Paranoid Android” meets “Everyday.”

Later this week you’ll be able to stream the whole album here.

It’s interesting that BDB is so obsessed with Springsteen, ’cause honestly I don’t hear the influence.
