DD Allen Announces Debut Album Launch Party w/Very Special Guests



Rebecca's Curse - Cover Art

Hot off the heels of blistering reviews for the debut single ‘Just Like The Old Days’ (28 Oct 2016), award winning British singer-songwriter DD Allen has announced the release of his follow up single ‘Rebecca’s Curse’; available to purchase on all major media providers on 30 June 2017.

The new single is taken from DD Allen’s forthcoming debut album, due Oct 2017.

Across its towering sound and Dylanesque song craft, DD Allen’s music is an atmospheric rock and blues infused lyrical tour de force with a hint of americana.

In Rebecca’s Curse, Allen’s song craft is on fine form and comes complete with the poetic dexterity of Dylan’s resurgent Time Out Of Mind period as the song muses and weaves through a story of isolation in the chorus before hope springs eternal in the final line:

“There’s something in the fold of the wind that follows you around, as it howls behind you whispering you’ll never be found”

“When you stop running and something special comes of you”.

Respecting the value of musical heritage, Rebecca’s Curse marks a refreshing return to traditional production values and tightly integrated musicianship. Recorded predominantly live with minimal technology and overdubs has resulted in a contemporary and sustainable sound with a natural depth of field.

Produced by double platinum credited producer / engineer Mike Spink (The 1975, Jake Bugg, The Gaslight Anthem) and mixed by Mark Tucker (Fairport Convention, PJ Harvey, Jethro Tull), Allen’s signature raw vocals blend beautifully with punchy drums, intricate guitars and ethereal pedal steel.

Inspired by songwriting greats including Bob Dylan, Bruce Springsteen and Adam Duritz (Counting Crows), Allen continues to tell engaging stories about real world influences and in true Dylanesque fashion, there’s just enough cryptic reference to allow listeners to paint their own picture of the songs characters.


"I listen to hundreds of new records a year but it has been a very long time since I have heard more beautifully written songs. Think Dylan, think Neil Young, DD Allen really is that good."
- Louder Than War

“A very very cool band”
- Rob da Bank (Founder of Bestival)
