Listen To Darren Watson's New Album 'Getting Sober For The End Of The World'

Chris Cudby / Monday 28th September, 2020 1:15PM

Pōneke folk-blues singer and guitarist Darren Watson has unveiled his presciently titled new album Getting Sober For The End Of The World. Written, produced and recorded by Watson, the former Chicago Smokeshop frontman is indeed a 'Self Made' man on his seventh studio long player, expounding on such themes as avoiding alcohol abuse (the title track), paranoia-fuelled violence ('Ernie Abbott') and the bold arrow of time ('Another Day') across the record's nine tracks. Along with his own compositions there's also a rustic rendition of Robert Johnson's venerable 'Preachin' Blues (Up Jumped The Devil)' plus a lush cover of NZ songwriter Matt Hay's 'Love That I Had' too. Open your ears to Getting Sober For The End Of The World, read our recent chat with the artist here, and don't miss Watson celebrating his album's launch in Wellington, Palmerston North and New Plymouth this very week...
