Ex-Bellowhead frontman and all round folk music legend Jon Boden has announced plans to release his first post-Bellowhead solo album Afterglow on the 6th October.

Afterglow is a companion release to Boden’s 2009 concept album Songs From The Floodplain. But while Songs From The Floodplain largely dealt with the rural setting, Afterglow looks to juxtapose this by being set in post-apocalyptic street carnival

“Like my previous album Songs From The Floodplain, Afterglow imagines a near-future world where the luxuries and comfort of 21st century life have become scarce, and a harder, simpler existence now prevails,” Jon Boden explained. “Afterglow is the story of a couple who are trying to find each other in the middle of a bonfire-night street carnival in a crumbling, derelict city. I had a wonderful time recording it in Sheffield with the help of my band the Remnant Kings and Andy Bell in the producer’s chair.”

The first taste of Afterglow is the single “Moths In The Gas Light” – take a listen below:

The full track listing for Afterglow is as follows:

1. Moths In The Gas Light
2. Afterglow
3. Bee Sting
4. Wrong Side of Town
5. Fires of Midnight
6. All The Stars Are Coming Out Tonight
7. Dancing In The Ruin
8. Burning Streets
9. Yellow Lights
10. Aubade
