Baxter Dury has announced that his new album The Night Chancers will be released by Heavenly on March 20.

The album was co-produced with longtime collaborator Craig Silvey, and was recorded at Hoxa studios in West Hampstead, London, in May 2019.

Watch a video for lead single “Slumlord” below:


The Night Chancers is about being caught out in your attempt at being free,” says Dury. “It’s about someone leaving a hotel room at three in the morning. You’re in a posh room with big Roman taps and all that, but after they go suddenly all you can hear is the taps dripping, and you can see the debris of the night is around you. Then suddenly a massive party erupts, in the room next door. This happened to me and all I could hear was the night chancer, the hotel ravers.”
