The Divine Comedy

After six long years, one of the most unique and acclaimed songwriters in pop is back doing what he does best. “The Divine Comedy is me at my purest,” says Neil Hannon. “It's like potcheen, completely unadulterated 100 per cent proof Hannon brain. Whether that's a good thing or not may depend on your taste.” Foreverland is The Divine Comedy's 11th album and features 11 flamboyantly melodic, lyrically audacious, sumptuously arranged, fantastically overblown and quietly moving songs of everyday relationships. The album represents Hannon at his most emotionally autobiographical, whilst simultaneously cloaking his life in oblique allusion. With Foreverland, Hannon has returned to what he does without compare: create intelligent, hook laden, life affirming pop music from a vast array of diverse and downright unlikely musical sources. “It was really a matter of taking what I could do as far as it could go and challenging myself every time I write a song. I didn't want the album to rest on its laurels at any point. I wanted the music to keep evolving, with arrangements that change from verse to verse and cast the lyrics in different lights.”
