Jaakko Eino Kalevi has announced details of his debut album, also called ‘Jaakko Eino Kalevi’, which will be released through Domino/Weird World on 15 Jun.

“I played the ‘self-titled’ card this time because for many people this album will be their first encounter with my music”, he says. “Also, I get my name misspelled so often that I think it’s good to focus on that at this point”.

If you have ever met me, I’ve probably enthused about Kalevi’s deadpan stage chat at some point. I’m very glad to see that has now translated into his press statements.

He will also play a couple of UK shows in June – a specific album launch show at the Courtyard Theatre in London on 19 Jun, plus a Brighton show for good measure at the Green Door Store on 23 Jun.

Here’s a track from the album, which you’ll probably also hear at those shows I’d wager, called ‘Double Talk’.
