Sweet Baboo has announced that he will release a new album, ‘Wild Imagination’, on 2 Jun. The record aims to be an antidote to these troubled times.

“I think everyone agrees 2016 was a pretty shitty year”, says the musician, real name Stephen Black. “I kept thinking about my son – he’s nearly three – and wanting to protect him from the world, so I decided to try and make an album full of positivity because that’s what I know I can do. And at the moment, I don’t know what else to suggest. As an aside, the album was originally going to be called ‘Positive Recordings'”.

He’ll also be touring in June. Here are the dates:

13 Jun: Ramsgate Music Hall
14 Jun: Brighton, The Prince Albert
15 Jun: London: The Lexington
16 Jun: Cardiff, Clwb Ifor Bach
17 Jun: Bristol, Thekla
18 Jun: Manchester, Soup Kitchen

Here’s the first single from the album, ‘Badminton’:
