Track Of The Day: Paul Draper - 'The Silence Is Deafening'

Former Mansun frontman and creative force Paul Draper recently returned to the world of music with his debut solo release 'EP One', which scored the hugely underrated songwriting legend a Number 1 position on the UK vinyl singles chart.

Shortly after the demise of Mansun, Draper began recording a solo album, which was scrapped due to his disillusion with the music business. After years away from the public eye, Paul played with Leeds band Menace Beach on a session recorded for Marc Riley's BBC Radio 6 Music show a few years ago and was surprised to find that the show had received a deluge of emails from Mansun fans wishing for his return to music. And now 'EP Two' is on its way, followed by the tentatively titled 'Spooky Action' album, which is due for release later in 2016.



Until then, 'EP One' features three brand new tracks that each show a different side to this hugely gifted songwriter. 'The Silence is Deafening', which was co-written with Catherine AD (aka The Anchoress) whose rather fine album 'Confessions Of A Romance Novelist' was co-produced and co-written by Paul.
