Today sees the release of “America’s Number 1 Greatest Singer!”; Adam Green’s, new album ‘Minor Love’.

The album showcases a tender side of the often arrogant and emotionally unavailable bully/singer, Green. In a total state of isolation, Green attempted to play nearly all the instruments on the record, due to incurable social phobias which plagued him. The inspiration for this album lies in Green’s fatalism. Despite a fairly normal upbringing, and a generally optimistic world view, he often contends that nothing lasts… that there is nothing to look forward to…and that “we are all living in a butcher shop,” which Leonard Cohen told him while at a Bar-B-Que at Lou Reed’s house.

To commemorate the release of Green’s new album he has filmed four videos documenting examples of his every day life. Here are two of them:

Buddy Bradley

Breaking Locks

All four videos (Buddy Bradley, Breaking Locks, Boss Inside and Give Them A Token) are available as part of the album to download from iTunes.

Adam Green's 'Minor Love' 08/10/09 in Adam Green

As some of you may know, Adam Green has been hard at work all year writing and recording his new album Minor Love, and writing his infamous blog www.thelakeroom.com but the record will finally be released via Rough Trade in UK/Europe on January 8th, 2010 and will feature 14 brand new tracks from “America’s Number 1 Greatest Singer!”. Minor Love found Green enlisting the talents of Rodrigo from Little Joy and other hanger-ons, like his brother Joel (and look-a-likes Joe Steinbrick and Greg from Megapuss). As a taster you can now download What Makes Him Act So Bad, the first track from the new album here.

Currently Adam is out on tour with The Cribs and has been having an amazing time in the UK! There’s just over a week of shows left on the tour, with many already sold out, so if you’re looking to catch any of the dates you might want to get crackin! The good news for any of you who may be kicking themselves for not paying attention to the dates… is that starting on January 26th Adam will start a full European and UK tour!
