Gregory Darling is an enigma. Famed for appearing in a choir conducted as a child by Ennio Morricone (Exorcist 2). Darling initially signed to Polygram as Darling Cruel and shifted 100,000 copies of his debut album Passion Crimes in its first week of release. Years later after a lengthy spell as Julian Lennon’s co-writer and two albums for FOD Records (Shell and Stew Americano), Darling has now found a new lease of life and it’s this optimism that makes new album ‘Coloured Life’ sound so young and full of beans; ‘Dirty Little Secrets’ is about setting the record straight before you fly headlong into a relationship; ‘The Invitation’ is the story of a rich Monaco heiress who offered Darling “the keys to the city.” ‘Monkey Love’ was inspired by an eye-opening trip to the zoo and is good enough to be in Jungle Book; and best of all is ‘With Or Without This Song’ which is probably the least cynical and most self-effacing tune you’re likely to hear this side of the millennium. Produced by Bob Rose and recorded and mixed in Brussels and Rome, ‘Invitation’ (and indeed ‘Coloured Life’) is like Adele or Amy Winehouse re-imagined by Elvis Costello and has an instant, classic feel, like something you’ve had knocking around the house for years. More than this though, ‘Coloured Life’ turns out to be a revelation: it’s the sound of someone hitting the ground running. Gregory Darling releases ‘Invitation’ on FOD Records in August 27th,2012. The album ‘Coloured Life’ is scheduled for release in September 2012, entitled “Invitation”. With this album Gregory has taken a joyful step forward, and with “Invitation” we have the first beautiful view into the world that is “COLOURED LIFE”.
