  • August 20, 2013

David Rotheray - Answer BalladsAcclaimed songwriter David Rotheray (Beautiful South) returns with his beautifully crafted new solo album ‘Answer Ballads’ (out 14th October), a collection of songs in which Rotheray, and his collaborators, take twelve classic pop songs and attempt to formulate an ‘Answer Ballad’ for each one. Taking existing fictional characters, from The Police’s “Roxanne” to Elton John’s “Daniel”, who are well-known but simultaneously unknown, Rotheray picks up the story from their perspective, using complete artistic licence.
