Baxter Dury Releases New Track ‘Leon’

Track: Baxter Dury – ‘Leon’

The second tune from his upcoming seventh studio album ‘I Thought I Was Better Than You’, due for release June 2nd 2023, is amongst us today and hints towards what we can expect from this new era of Baxter Dury. Featuring an exciting new character which he calls “faux-confrontational”, we see an honest recount of a toxic upbringing and an open conversation about unfortunately fortunate circumstances.

What They Said: “A more or less factual account of what happened when Leon – my horrible class mate – and I stole sunglasses from Boots on Kensington High Street in the mid ‘80s. The reaction of the police and lack of parenting now seem to shocking since becoming a parent myself”

Label: Heavenly Recordings
