Maximo Park’s Paul Smith to release two solo albums

Maximo Park singer Paul Smith is currently working on a side project which will feature the release of two solo albums.

One will be based on Smith’s travel journals and will include “Frozen By Side”, a track the singer wrote with Peter Brewis of Field Music and performed during last summer Festival Of The North East. The other album is said to be a studio recording of “A Mind Full Of Nothing But Continue”, a thirty-minutes work Smith wrote for The Great North Run.

Paul Smith will be touring with Maximo Park later this year, but has just told NME he would like to collaborate with folk singer Kathryn Williams as well.
