Maximo Park frontman Paul Smith has just announced his fourth solo album Diagrams (out October 26th via Billingham Records). Paul has also dropped the album’s first single Silver Rabbit, which in its 2 minutes runtime tells a story of self-doubt against overdriven guitars. Listen below.

Diagrams follows on from debut solo album Margins (2010), the collaborative album Frozen By Sight (2014) and 2015’s Contradictions. The new album focuses on the obscure and the everyday, ever searching for romance.

Paul comments:

It’s a punchy song where the self-doubt and regret in the lyrics is mirrored by the musical tension that develops as it goes along. I grew up in the grunge era, so this has echoes of that sound but with my own romantic view of everyday life
