The Night Chancers follows 2017’s Prince of Tears and is his sixth studio album, released on March 20th, 2020. On ‘The Night Chancers’ Baxter says:
“The Night Chancers is about being caught out in your attempt at being free”, it’s about someone leaving a hotel room at three in the morning. You’re in a posh room with big Roman taps and all that, but after they go suddenly all you can hear is the taps dripping, and all you can see the debris of the night is around you. Then suddenly a massive party erupts, in the room next door. This happened to me and all I could hear was the night chancer, the hotel ravers”.
The album was co – produced by long time collaborator Craig Silvey (Arcade Fire, John Grant, Arctic Monkeys) and Baxter, and was recorded at Hoxa Studios West Hampstead in May 2019.
