The album was co-produced by long-time collaborator
Craig Silvey (Arcade Fire, John Grant, Artic Monkeys) and
Baxter Dury and was recorded at Hoxa studios West
Hampstead in May 2019.  From thrilling affairs that dissolve into sweaty desperation
(‘Night Chancers’) to the absurd bloggers, fruitlessly
clinging to the fag ends of the fashion set (‘Sleep People’),
via soiled real life (‘Slum Lord’) social media-enabled
stalkers (‘I’m Not Your Dog’) and new day, sleep-deprived
optimism (‘Daylight’), the record’s finely drawn vignettes
are all based on the corners of world Dury has visited.  Baxter says “‘Night Chancers’ is about being caught out in
your attempt at being free, 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 all 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.”
