B. Dolan returns with brand new video and single ‘The Rock Cried Out’ alongside announcing a new studio album, and a UK tour!
Since the critically acclaimed LP release in 2019 ’This Was Supposed To Be Fun’ via his artist duo pairing with Sage Frances, namely ‘Epic Beard Men’, rapper and poet B. Dolan returns after a tumultuous 4 year absence- during which he underwent massive spinal surgery during the pandemic and a lengthy recovery process-with the first single from a forthcoming LP entitled “The Wound Is Not The Body”, due out Spring 2024.
Backed by dusty, moody organs and slapping production from the duo known as Widowmaker, “The Rock Cried Out” lyrically expands on a bar from the Nina Simone song “Sinnerman”. Writing from the perspective of a rock, Dolan finds surprising veins of vulnerability in what he has to say about himself, humanity, and relationships subject to lifetimes and centuries.
Alongside this B. Dolan will embark of a string of UK tour dates, kicking off for a few shows at the renowned Edinburgh Fringe Festival, followed by more performances up and down the country, with support from UK 2023 Poetry Slam Champion Mithago Craze.
