Label: Hopeless Records
Released: 28th October 2022
De’Wayne is already a star. Last year’s ‘STAINS’ proved as much. Upset’s Album of the Year for 2021, to say that ‘My Favourite Blue Jeans’ beats it would be quite the statement – and yet it quite probably does.
Sharpened up and aimed straight for the stars, it’s more immediate, more in your face and strapped front to back with bangers. From the addictive sugar rush of ‘Sexi Boy’, to the strut of ‘Thank You For Lying’ and smooth as silk ‘Simple’ – featuring iDKHOW no less – every one’s a winner.
Two five star albums in two years? Wake up, world. De’Wayne’s a-knockin’. ■ Dan Harrison
