Former Doves singer Jimi Goodwin debuts solo album, video

Jimi Goodwin has unveiled the second video from his debut solo album Odludek. The video for "Live Like A River" was directed by David Chatton Barker.

Having spent the last decade fronting Manchester, UK band Doves, Jimi Goodwin decided to make music under his own name.
Odludek - which is out now - bounces from genre to genre. 

"I wanted to make this mad mixtape: the kind you'd pass back and forth with your mates; eclectic as f***," said Goodwin. "That's the way we've all discovered music over the years isn't it? We join our own dots to make it all make sense. As I got into making the record, it felt like I was proving something to myself, making a point that I could do all this on my own. You know - I can play bass, I can play guitar, I can orchestrate. As the methods changed, the original concept stayed intact. It's me, powering through ideas, kapow kapow, no pause for breath. It's not trying to be wilfully eclectic; it's just a reflection of how I schizophrenically devour music."

Odludek is co-produced by Jimi and Dan Austin (Doves, Pixies) and features tracks co-written with Elbow's Guy Garvey and one, "Didsbury Girl," with Simon Dine (who collaborated with Paul Weller on his recent run of albums).

Track listing:

1. Terracotta Warrior
2. Didsbury Girl
3. Live Like A River
4. Hope
5. Man v Dingo
6. Keep My Soul In Song
7. Oh! Whiskey
8. Ghost Of The Empties
9. Lonely At The Drop
10. Panic Tree
