* IN-STORE ACOUSTIC SET AND SIGNING AT 5PM ON FRIDAY 26 JANUARY *
Emerging back into earshot, erstwhile ex-Kaiser Chief Nick J.D. Hodgson is preparing to unveil his debut solo album, Tell Your Friends.
As the main songwriter the group, Hodgson already has an enviable record of global hits under his belt. Since leaving in 2012 he has written and produced for other artists, and has seen success in this new world with the likes of Mark Ronson, John Newman, Hurts and Ratboy.
Tell Your Friends marks Hodgson's leap from band member to solo artist, and is a collection of songs that sees him expressing himself in a more personal way than ever before: "The lyrics are very honest, I wanted to express myself on this record, delve a little deeper and draw out some feelings I'd never touched on in songs before... I'd mainly written with someone else's voice in mind, so the lyrics would reflect that. I would shy away from writing very personal things, but with this album I thought there's no point doing it unless it's honest."
