Even though its taken close to 15 years, the long-rumored collaboration between XTC’s Andy Partridge and Robyn Hitchcock will finally see the light of day.
The collaboration will come in the form of a four song EP called Planet England and will contain the songs “Turn Me On, Deadman,” “Flight Attendants, Please Prepare For Love,” “Got My…” and the title track.
Hitchcock had this to say about the partnership on Facebook: “Andy Partridge and I are thrilled in our own dismal, British way to announce that the recordings we began in his shed in Swindon in 2006 are now complete and released on APE records. After a long hiatus we returned to the project last year, adding a fourth song to three completed ones, enough for an EP entitled PLANET ENGLAND.”
Out Sept 6 on vinyl and CD through Partridge’s Ape House label, Planet England can be pre-ordered now.
In other Robyn Hitchcock news, the singer/songwriter will be touring the U.S this Fall.
