Gruff Rhys Announces New Album ‘Hotel Shampoo’

November 9, 2010 by  

Gruff Rhys?s has today announced the details of his third solo album, Hotel Shampoo, which will be released on 14th February.

The unusual title of the record is said to be ?a reference to Gruff?s unfortunate habit of hoarding mini shampoo bottles and other complimentary hotel products whilst on tour.?

His obsession manifested itself last week, when the Welshman created an art installation in a Cardiff gallery, of a miniature hotel using his stash of shampoo bottles, toothbrushes, shower caps and slippers.

The track-list to ‘Hotel Shampoo’ is below:

Shark Ridden Waters
Honey All Over
Sensations In The Dark
Vitamin K
Take A Sentence
Conservation Conversation
Sophie Softly
Christopher Columbus
Space Dust
At The Heart Of Love
Patterns Of Power
If We Were Words (We Would Rhyme)
Rubble Rubble

The Hotel Shampoo installation is currently on display at the Chapter Arts centre in Cardiff.
