Gaz Coomes Announces New Album WORLD'S STRONGEST MAN

Stream Lead Single “Deep Pockets” Now

“World's Strongest Man” out May 4 via Hot Fruit / Caroline International

“World’s Strongest Man” is the follow up to 2015’s critically acclaimed “Matador,”– a record pretty much conceived, recorded and mixed in the studio equivalent of solitary confinement. 

Following its release, Coombes evolved from “Former Supergrass Frontman” to hugely respected Mercury Prize nominated solo artist in the space of just ten months. 

That album spawned five singles, was described by Q Magazine as “his masterpiece,”  labeled an “instant classic” and awarded 5/5 stars by MOJO Magazine. 

Like “Matador,” “World’s Strongest Man” was written, recorded and produced by Gaz Coombes at his home studio and at Oxford’s Courtyard Studios (with co-production from long time studio partner Ian Davenport in a working process Gaz compares to what it must be like “editing a novel”).

The first track from World’s Strongest Man – “Deep Pockets” –is out now and available to stream and purchase here

“Worlds Strongest Man” will be released May 4 via Gaz's Hot Fruit label through Caroline International.

“World’s Strongest Man” is the magnificent third solo album by Gaz Coombes. 

Inspired variously by Grayson Perry’s autobiography “The Descent of Man,” Frank Ocean’s Blonde, Californian weed, British woodlands, unchecked masculinity, Neu!, and hip hop (and a whole lot more besides) -- a remarkable collection of eleven deeply personal songs each set to expansive, addictive melodies. 

From the deep soul purge of the title track to the coruscating Fripp-goes-motorik sprint of “Deep Pockets” via the gorgeous cyclonic ballad “Slow Motion Life” and the raw-as-hell stream of consciousness panic attack of “Vanishing Act,” “World’s Strongest Man” is a bold, ambitious, free-thinking, future-facing rock‘n’roll record.
