Beth Jeans Houghton releases a brand new album on Mute under the name Du Blonde. The new moniker is a fresh start for Beth whose album is a big change in musical direction. Whilst her 2012 album 'Yours Truly, Cellophane Nose' was a standalone piece of polymath pop, 25-year-old Houghton, has constantly evolved and reinvented herself - a musical and aesthetic chameleon always playing by her own rules. Where 2012's debut 'Yours Truly Cellophane Nose' threw everything at a song, 'Welcome Back To Milk' strips everything back and is one massive release of pent up aggression, captured perfectly by producer and Bad Seed Jim Sclavunos. Heavy riffs, loud drums and vocal snarls contrast beautifully with more poignant balladry and tenderness that fans of Houghton's previous work will recognise. Future Islands frontman Samuel T Herring also provides guest vocals on 'My Mind Is On My Mind'.
