DEXYS – ” The Feminine Divine “

Posted: April 3, 2023 in MUSIC

Dexys are back with their brand new album ‘The Feminine Divine’ It’s their first original LP in 11 years. 

The group’s fifth album of original material is produced once again by Pete Schwier, along with acclaimed session musician and producer Toby Chapman, and sees frontman Kevin Rowland with a fresh perspective and newfound positivity. 

Described as a “personal, if not strictly autobiographical, record portraying a man whose views have evolved over time,” the project explores every-changing views towards the concept of masculinity. It’s an idea reflected in the artwork for the project – a painting inspired by Pele, the Hawaiian goddess of fire and volcanoes – with two tracks on the album featuring the word Goddess in the title. 

Clocking in at nine new tracks, ‘The Feminine Divine’ is a combination of music hall-esque swagger and synth-heavy cabaret, penned in collaboration with original Dexys’ trombonist Big Jim Paterson, along with Sean Read and Mike Timothy.

Album opener “The One That Loves You” was originally written by Kevin in 1991. 

Alongside the album announcement, Dexys have released its first single, the horn-heavy, dance-hall-inspired “I’m Going To Get Free”, with the track out now digitally. 

The Feminine Divine” is out July 28th on 100% Records
