Lloyd Cole is back in a country that has always known how to applaud his music. The classics that the English composer signed at the beginning of his career with the Commotions were ubiquitous in our radio playlists in the 80s and since he launched his solo album with the same name in 1990, Cole has never been away from our country for too long, having established a solid reputation on stage here.
Now, in addition to the classics collected over the last 35 years of a prolific career that has given us one of the best pop songbooks – from “Lost Weekend” to “Brand New Friend” or “No Blue Skies” – Lloyd Cole brings us a new set of songs that come together on his 12th solo album, Guesswork, which is about to be released. In this album, with a pop and electronic character that brings him closer to some of the terrains covered, for example, by the Pet Shop Boys, Lloyd Cole meets old companions like Blair Cohen, from the Commotions, or Fred Maher, an elite drummer who played, for example, with Lou Reed.
It will be, for all the reasons, a special concert, with the usual songs of a true master of words and those of now, those in which he reflects on the point of life to which time has brought him. He says: “I’m beginning to think that old age can be a lot more fun than middle age because, really, what do we have to lose?”
