When I Was A Young Man 10/6/22

On Wednesday, Hugh Cornwell released today's Video Of The Day, 'When I Was A Young Man', the first single taken from his highly anticipated tenth solo album, 'Moments of Madness', that's due out on Friday 7th October, and to dovetail with the new album, Hugh will embark on a 21-date nationwide UK tour from Friday 4th November to Saturday 3rd December. Widely regarded as the poet laureate of the Punk era (from his early career fronting The Stranglers to his transition as a solo artist), in what is probably the most revealing song Cornwell has written to date, 'When I Was A Young Man' explores the relationship he had with his parents. Sharply observed through the prism of himself as a younger man and in his present condition, Hugh lifts the lid on his family relationships.
