Rosalie Cunningham commented:

“‘Chocolate Money‘ is a snapshot of the ostentatious decadence of the ’70s. The mythical rock star character with his double-entendre and self-centred hedonism. The industry has become a very different world since then, which is something I will expand on lyrically with my next album. It has inspired my desire to go back to basics and remember what music is supposed to be about.”

“The past five years have been an unforgettable whirlwind, for which I have to thank our wonderful fans around the world, the band and all the people who have contributed to Purson’s success over the years. Their support has been overwhelming, but the Purson framework has gone as far as it could go, and now it’s simply time to move on. I feel strongly drawn to a more DIY approach to my career in music, and look forward to the freedom to explore many avenues as a solo artist.”

Purson Premiere “The Window Cleaner” Music Video

Purson have premiered a new video for their song “The Window Cleaner,” via Mojo. This song is from their new album, “Desire’s Magic Theatre,” which is available now.

Rosalie Cunningham said the following:

“The songs on ‘Desire’s Magic Theatre‘ are very personal, like a diary. They tend to be about the psychedelic experience, something that’s been important to me since my teenage years, figuring out my own sense of spirituality, and ‘The Window Cleaner’ is a prime example… I’d been up all night at a party, and I wasn’t really enjoying myself, it was all quite seedy. So in the morning I went to the park with a friend to do some mushrooms. Afterwards, everything had become so beautiful that I went home and demo’d up the song in a couple of hours, and the album version is pretty much the same as that first demo…

I think the video is a good representation of where the song sprang from…”

Purson To Release “Desire’s Magic Theatre” In March/Announce UK Tour

Purson have revealed the release date for their new album, “Desire’s Magic Theatre.” The effort will be released on March 25. via Spinefarm. Rosie Cunningham had the following say about that:

“Desire’s Magic Theatre has turned out to be everything I’d imagined and more. My world has been so consumed by it that I’ve barely been able to reflect on what it has become: a technicolor variety show, a playful display of the musical whims only briefly hinted at in our previous work; a psychedelic rock opera dedicated to our good friends Sarge Pepper and Zig Stardust.”
