Johnny Jewel – Windswept

Johnny Jewel’s latest long-playing opus, Windswept, has arrived in a flurry of startling revelations. For one, long-suffering fans waiting endlessly for the arrival of Dear Tommy, the fifth album from his flagship band, Chromatics, learned the unexpected reason for the delay. According to his manager via Twitter, the album was scrapped with all physical copies literally destroyed after Jewel suffered a near-death experience in Hawaii. Going so far as to delete the handful of pre-release singles from the album (including the stellar “I Can Never Be Myself When You’re Around”), Jewel has allegedly re-recorded a “better” version of Dear Tommy, although a release date has yet to be announced.
