John Cale gets Extra Playful on first Double Six release

Welsh music leg-end John Cale has signed to Domino imprint, Double Six. Extra Playful, a five track EP of brand new material will be released on 12” (DS046T) and digitally (DS046D) on September 19th.

John Cale is forever ready to jump off the edge and take everyone with him. Extra Playful leaps from Pop’s edge with glee, freewheeling through springy beats, snaking, shonky guitar lines and zones of exciting texture that gesture to Cale’s role as a master producer. His lyrics veer from richly poetic to extra playful; at times it’s as though he’s having a little word in your ear, which is welcome from a voice as charming and smart as he is here. He’s asking you to have fun with him, and who can say no when he’s offering whimsical art rock this fine, beguiling and invigorating.
