Legendary British artist Robyn Hitchcock has returned with SHUFFLEMANIA!, his first new album in over five years! It features musical contributions from Brendan Benson, Johnny Marr, Sean Ono Lennon, Kimberley Rew, Morris Windsor, Kelley Stoltz, and more!
Recorded in locations around the world over the pandemic era, SHUFFLEMANIA! offers up 10 gloriously ingenious new Robyn Hitchcock songs in just under 40 minutes - a “proper pop album” as nature intended. Songs like “Midnight Tram To Nowhere” and the optimistic, album-closing “One Day (It’s Being Scheduled)” are state-of-the-art Hitchcock, manifesting his signature wit, miraculous gift for melodic craftsmanship, and striking humanity in a world gone mad.
“To say that SHUFFLEMANIA! belongs in the man’s upper echelon becomes less hyperbolic with each spin. Concepts like ‘consistency’ and ‘quality’ are relative, but a new album from Robyn Hitchcock is always good for a grand reminder of what is truly ‘great,’and SHUFFLEMANIA! is no exception.” - POPMATTERS (8/10)
“It’s usually advisable to ride along with this great British (albeit Nashville-dwelling) eccentric’s flights of surrealism, as they often poignantly clarify more about reality than the most furrow-browed musings of others…From heavy skiffle to serpent gods to ponderings on Pacino, noir and mortality, this charms and challenges.” – RECORD COLLECTOR (****)
“10 short, snappy songs…its colourful patchwork exterior clothes some of Hitchcock’s finest recent songs.” – UNCUT (8/10)
