Ginger’s New Solo Album “The Pessimist’s Companion” – Pre-Order And Instant Download Available at 5.55pm Friday November 23!

Ginger Wildheart releases his brand new solo album “The Pessimist’s Companion” direct to the world on his Round Records label, at 5.55pm on Friday November 23rd.

Says Ginger:

“The Pessimist’s Companion” is a break-up album, which follows on from the confessional “Ghost In The Tanglewood”.
It was written largely in a caravan, where me and Maggie, my faithful furry companion, lived and and documented the emotional minefield of a relationship breakdown and the search for the strength to ‘start again’ in life.
As with “Ghost In The Tanglewood”, this is a fearlessly honest collection of songs, thoughts and feelings.
I have used the same musicians this time around too. I feel that they performed so admirably on the last album and created a perfect bed from which to showcase the lyrics and melodies.
And the album is, once again, produced by Dave Draper who did such a great job with the sound of the last album.
I hope you find some comfort, some joy and a sense of sharing with this selection of songs.
Sharing troubles with you in song is my therapy.
Thank you for being there.

“The Pessimist’s Companion” will be available on CD and vinyl, with limited edition signed options.
Pre-orders are available at 5.55pm on Friday 23 November from and will come with an instant download of the album. Finished products will be shipped early 2019. Continue reading
