The Lemon Twigs - Songs For The General Public LP (Opaque Red)

The D’Addario brothers returned in May with their third Lemon Twigs album, “Songs For The General Public“.

Songs For The General Public” was written, recorded and produced by the D’Addarios at their Long Island home studio, Sonora Studios in Los Angeles and New York City’s Electric Lady. The first single ‘The One’ is available today, alongside a video directed by Michael Hili featuring Brian and Michael D’Addario on the campaign trail for ‘the one’.

Receiving the seal of approval from the king of kitsch himself, Elton John, with their debut album “Do Hollywood” in 2016, The Lemon Twigs, made up of Long Island brothers Brian and Michael D’Addario, are no strangers when it comes to pomp. 

Their outlandish combination of baroque rock, power pop and glam calls to mind the theatrical eccentricity of Queen, most notably on 2018’s “Go To School”, a concept album about a musical chimpanzee called Shane who’s raised as a human boy. 2020’s “Songs For The General Public” plays with vintage swirling synths, campy melodies and operatic harmonies that salute the peculiar jauntiness of Supertramp and Alice Cooper.

The 12-track album released on 1st May digitally and on CD, limited translucent red vinyl (only available via indie stores and the 4AD Store) and standard black vinyl.

Released August 21st, 2020
