WESTERMAN RELEASES DEBUT ALBUM
 
LISTEN TO YOUR HERO IS NOT DEAD OUT NOW
VIA PLAY IT AGAIN SAM

On June 5th, Westerman released his debut album Your Hero Is Not Dead, via Play It Again Sam and Partisan Records (US/CA). Recorded alongside his close friend and producer Nathan Jenkins (A.K.A. Bullion) at first in Southern Portugal before finishing the process in London, Your Hero Is Not Dead is an album about empathy and compassion, struggle and release, and all the ways we contradict and battle within ourselves. 

The album has received praise from Pitchfork, Uncut and NME and who have all awarded it 4* reviews. Now he shares a visualiser for one of the standout tracks, “Confirmation”, featuring artwork and animations from the illustrator, Bráulio Amado.



The album is full of supremely crafted, groove-hinged songs about moral, political, and ethical grey areas, that find Westerman attempting to resolve external issues by looking inward. It’s a graceful and self-reflective debut album that continues the artist’s journey from pop maverick to one of the most vital voices coming out of the UK. The project includes previously released singles, “The Line”, “Your Hero Is Not Dead,” “Waiting on Design,” “Think I’ll Stay” and “Blue Comanche” and is the follow-up to his critically-acclaimed Ark EP
