New album 'Aforger' is due on October 14th...
'Oh Father'

Douglas Dare has shared his heartbreaking, beautiful new track 'Oh Father'.

The composer is gearing up to release new album 'Aforger' on October 14th, while he'll also support Wild Beasts on their upcoming tour.

New song 'Oh Father' is enormously personal, dealing with Douglas Dare coming out to his father. The accompanying visuals are incredibly intense yet also entirely simple - shot in one continuous take by Jeremy Carne and Nikolas Kasinos, it places huge emphasis on the composer's own performance.

Douglas Dare comments: "'Oh Father' is certainly the most personal song I've put out in to the world and the subject is a sensitive one, so I felt any visuals we created had to respect this. I wanted something that wouldn't distract from the song itself; the lyrics are quite purposefully unambiguous and are direct, so we chose to do a single-shot that would intensify the song and not allow the viewer up for air. The audience will read what they will in to the video and, I hope too, the song; for me they are both honest."

Check it out now.

Catch Douglas Dare at the Roundhouse, London on October 4th supporting Wild Beasts.
