Back with news of his third album, English artist Douglas Dare has announced that ‘Milkteeth’ - the follow-up to 2014 debut ‘Whelm’ and 2016’s ‘Aforger’ - will be landing on 21st February 2020.
Produced by Mike Lindsay at his studio in Margate, the new album sees Douglas “confident and comfortable enough with his own identity to reflect on both the joys and pains of youth”, with gorgeous, folk-esque first track ‘Silly Games’ acting as a perfect indication of this.
“Instinctual feelings about childhood and innocence were the catalyst,” Douglas explains of the song’s creation, which includes heartstring pulling lyrics such as “Mother’s in the kitchen drying tears, father’s on the outside and won’t come near”.
Embracing a new instrument - the autoharp - as opposed to his classic piano-leanings, Douglas continues: “Then with the autoharp, it all just clicked – I could see the album laid out ahead of me.”

The track is taken from his third album ‘Milkteeth’.
A stunningly-harmonious musical journey filled with nostalgia.
In between records, Douglas Dare came out to his father and ended a long-term relationship. ‘Aforger’ documents these life-altering experiences.
‘Aforger’ is due out this October via Erased Tapes.
