Sir Tom considers the album an “under score”, over which he has placed his play.
The album, which is around 40 minutes long, will be played in full, chronologically, with the characters’ dialogue spoken between tracks and over instrumental sections.
The “surreal” story is based on a young couple who face various modern dilemmas. It is said to be an exploration of the modern psyche, incorporating the album’s themes such as greed and madness.
