Teddy Thompson – Heartbreaker Please
Format: CD – LP
Label: Thirty Tigers – Chalky Sounds
Releasedatum: 29 mei 2020

From its opening track ‘Heartbreaker Please’ reckons with the breakdown of love with a wistful levity as satisfying as it is devastatingly honest.
And while the album is drawn from the demise of a real-life relationship, as told from Thompson’s perspective, it might also be seen as a projection of his relationship with New York City, the place he has called home for the better part of two decades.
A member of the British musical dynasty first helmed by his legendary parents, Linda and Richard Thompson, he left London for the States at 18, settling in New York five years later. “At the time I was just taking a long vacation that never ended,” he says. “I wanted to reinvent myself and it was easier to leave it behind and go somewhere new to announce myself as a musician, rather than explain to all the people who’ve known you since you were a kid. And you can actually reinvent yourself in America, step off the plane, say ‘my name is whatever’.”
Twenty years later, ‘Heartbreaker Please’ finds Teddy Thompson perfectly himself, a commanding artist at the top of his craft.
Following his collaboration album ‘Little Windows’ with Kelly Jones, ‘Heartbreaker Please’ is Teddy Thompson’s first solo record since 2011.
A fun mix of New Wave and Folk, ‘Heartbreaker Please’ is self-produced. Previously, Teddy has produced artists like Linda Thompson, Allison Moorer and Shelby Lynne.
