about

This was the debut White Town album. It's experimental in a lot of ways: I was pushing the tech I had access to past it limits in lots of ways. I was also trying, for the first time, to step outside myself and write from other perspectives, something I'd build on when I wrote 'Your Woman.' So, you can see 'My Baby Will Love Me' as a proto version of that.

The album also maps out the course of a relationship, starting happy, ending sadly which, I guess, is how most of them go. The girl it's all about is on the record itself, as am I. It's deliberately uneasy listening.

It's also the longest record I could make, the most you could fit onto a CD back then. I was trying to make an album that was pop and indie but also pretty much claustrophobic, embarrassing and disturbing in lots of ways.

If you listen to the whole album in one go, on headphones, you're having the full experience of what I intended.

I'm very proud of this album, it's a complete solo project in terms of writing, performance and recording. I think that's where I'm happiest.
