Ex-ASKING ALEXANDRIA Singer Releases Behind-The-Scenes Footage From Making Of 'Mexico' Video
October 20, 2016
Behind-the-scenes footage from the making of the video for "Mexico", a new solo song from former ASKING ALEXANDRIA and current WE ARE HARLOT frontman Danny Worsnop. The track will appear on Worsnop's forthcoming debut solo album, "The Long Road Home" (formerly "The Prozac Sessions"),which will be made available through Earache Records.
"The Long Road Home" track listing:
01. Prozac 02. Mexico 03. I Feel Like Shit 04. Anyone But Me 05. High 06. I Got Bones 07. Quite A While 08. Don't Overdrink It 09. I'll Hold On 10. Midnight Woman 11. Same Old Ending 12. The Man
The singer told Alternative Press last year about the musical direction of his solo material: "[The solo album has] still got some of that typical snotty flair going. I'm still, for the most part, singing the blues. But I went into it with country in mind. I've always loved country. In England, I grew up as a country boy. I was in a small village of two hundred people. The lifestyle goes hand in hand with the music all over the world. [But writing] it just never crossed my mind. Obviously, of late, I've made a lot of life changes, where I'm exploring new things. So it seemed like an appropriate time. I had some time off, I was jamming on the guitar and I had some ideas, and I was, like, 'Fuck it, let's take this and run."
The songs on "The Long Road Home" were completed with songwriters like John Paul White (THE CIVIL WARS),while producer Jim Kaufman sat behind the boards.
"We're definitely going to push to radio a lot, do videos," Danny told Alternative Press. "[The solo project] is definitely something I'd like to make a lot of money doing and get to do more of. If it's not a success, I doubt I'll have much opportunity to do it again. [But] there's no plans to tour, per se. Maybe just shows here and there. So it's nothing that's... I know I've said this before, and it ended with me leaving the band. [Laughs]"
Worsnop exited ASKING ALEXANDRIA in January 2015, explaining in a statement: "Over the last eight years together, we've done some amazing things and created something truly special. I now, same as then, want what's best for the band and at this point in time, that isn't me."
Danny has since been replaced by Ukrainian singer Denis Shaforostov, who gained notoriety posting ASKING ALEXANDRIA covers on YouTube and consequentially inked a deal with Sumerian in his band DOWN & DIRTY.
