SCOTTISH singer-songwriter Jack Henderson is set to unveil his album Where’s The Revolution later this year.

The record will be released in October, via Fretsore Records, and is spearheaded by a music video for the new single Hey Batman.

Hallmarked with Henderson’s typically wry humour and canny lyricism the track sees the singer envisaging an ageing Batman in an existential crisis. With the future of the Dark Knight in doubt, this intriguing single offers wistful epiphany as Henderson ruminates deeply on themes of legacy, mortality, and the inevitability of change.

Henderson said: “One thing that’s certain in life is that we all get older. With that inevitability comes the possibility that both we and our heroes are surpassed by new ideas and either disappear, become irrelevant or, worse, become anachronistic clanging bells.

"The only way to embrace getting older, however challenging it may be at times, is to accept that things change, remain curious and open to new ideas and resist the temptation to settle."

The track arrives with a video shot at an old narrow gauge mining railway in the Scottish Southern Uplands. Directed by Hazel Henderson, it received its post-production finesse from Fretsore’s in-house videographer Paul "Rile" Avis.

The single will be followed up by the release of the album, self-recorded outside the singer's hometown of Glasgow. 

Henderson added: “If necessity is the mother of invention then Where’s The Revolution is largely the result of that confluence of necessity and invention.

"Sometimes limitations can be liberating and for this album I wanted to explore what would happen if I recorded, produced and more or less played everything myself whilst embracing those limitations, both physical and financial, head-on.

"There was no overarching manifesto and I wanted to let the songs dictate their own course and allow the imposed imperfections to constitute the very soul of the record.”

Expressing his excitement for the upcoming release, Ian Sephton, owner of London-based indie label Fretsore Records, said: “Seeing Jack play live in 2018, I was very impressed with not only his songwriting but Jack’s captivating solo performance.

"So when I learned that Jack had 10 newly recorded songs, I was delighted that he agreed to release them on Fretsore.”

Where’s The Revolution is released on October 2.
