Edward Rogers Announces TV GENERATION out June 9th

Prolific British-rock inspired singer-songwriter Edward Rogers is gearing up to release his seventh solo album, TV Generation, via Zip Records on June 9th. In the gritty tradition of Nick Cave and Ray Davies, TV Generation pairs Rogers’ authentic and reflective lyricism with his powerful gritty melodic voice creating an album that is grounded in firm Britrock and English baroque.  A veritable who’s who of seminal, established artists, he was joined in the studio by several talented musicians that have been well established in their genre for decades, including the albums producer Don Piper (Syd Straw). James Mastro (Ian Hunter), Sal Maida (Roxy Music, Cracker), Dennis Diken (Smithereens), Geoff Blythe (Dexys, Black 47), Jane Scarpantoni (Lou Reed) and more!

TV Generation kicks off with the title track that resonates with an electric (and at times psychedelic) throwback to the late 70’s and early 80’s – leading into Rogers’ nostalgic and heartfelt tribute to fallen icons, “20th Century Heroes“. The third track “No Words” slips gently into an Elvis Costello-esque ballad – theatrical and sober with an emotional force behind Edwards vocals. “On This Wednesday In June” brings the relaxed almost conversational tone of Lou Reed, building into an explosive anthem, while “You and I” brings the record into an intimate light ending in the comfort of a light timpani and Beatles-inspired mellotron. TV Generation ends on the driving fire of “She’s The One” stacking up the energy of the album and leaving you wanting more.

  1. All previous Edward Ripogers albums have been each more brilliant than the next and TV Generation is no exception. Few songwriters can out do their past already great work each time and Ed is one of those very few. Ray Davies is another that comes to mind❤️So Ed is in good company. This already is one of 2 albums as best of 2017 so far and I seriously doubt any forthcoming releases this year to change that. ????
