He’s also sharing his latest single ‘CSI: Petralona’.

Three years on since the release of his debut album ‘Your Hero Is Not Dead’, Westerman has announced that his second album ‘An Inbuilt Fault’ will be out on 5th May via Partisan Records and Play It Again Sam.

Sharing new single ‘CSI: Petralona’ alongside the news, Westerman says, “I had the riff for the song and left it lying around with a bunch of other bits and pieces. A friend told me that Tom Waits has this image of having a musical junk drawer of old parts that you haven’t found anything to do with. It came from there. I went to Greece for a month to scope out if I wanted to move here, and a friend encouraged me to write about this strange day I had there. The lyrics were immediate. It’s presented on the album as it was first written. It’s the most autobiographical song on the record.”
