Jon Fratelli – Multi-instrumentalist, singer, songwriter and frontman from The Fratellis announces details of a new single ‘Dreams Don’t Remember Your Name’ out today!
‘Dreams Don’t Remember Your Name’ is taken from Jon’s forthcoming solo album. ‘Bright Night Flowers’ which will be released on the 15th February 2019 via Cooking Vinyl.
The album was recorded in Scotland during the summer of 2018 and was self-produced with the help of a long-term friend, musician and producer Stuart McCredie (Simple Minds, Echo & The Bunny Men, Belle & Sebastian and The Fratellis)
Straight off the back of the last Fratellis album, Jon’s solo material displays a more down-tempo melodic side to his songwriting and with echoes of Glen Campbell, Roy Orbison and even Tom Waits, this perfectly-assembled, finely-wrought, nine-track album showcases something very special from his art.
Soul-noir, country gothic, The Big ‘O’ meets The Big Easy, the Heart of Saturday Night meets the West End of Glasgow…Call it what you will, Jon’s second solo ‘joint’ is a little masterpiece and a refreshing change of pace from his previous work.

Jon talks about the new track by saying “I guess you could say Dreams Don’t Remember Your Name is a lullaby. Not the kind that you sing to your kids to send them off to sleep but the kind that you might serenade the world-weary with. The title itself says all that needs saying… dream any dream you like, whether it’s a nightmare or a tale of bliss it’s all the same in the end but you might as well dream yourself some bliss after all no one is keeping score!”
