PREMIERE: Stream Tim Rogers’ New Album ‘An Actor Repairs’ Here, Ahead Of Its Release

The process of giving up something you love is the basis of You Am I frontman Tim Rogers‘ new solo record An Actor Repairs, a record which follows the emotional trajectory of an elderly actor saying goodbye to his craft.

Written and re-written over two years as an accompaniment to a performance piece Rogers was attempting, the resulting record comprises 12 songs that detail the life of its protagonist as the curtain comes down on his last performance. Set for release this Friday, 28th April, we’re thrilled to be premiering the full album in advance, here today.

Explains Rogers of the album’s premise, “Ambition long given over to a journeyperson’s approach, the fear of leaving a life’s passion behind and the ghosts of romances born and played out within theatre walls, vie for attention on a long walk home from closing night.”

An Actor Repairs transformed from stage performance piece to album after Rogers teamed up with a cohort of trusted musical friends, including Clio Renner, Melanie Robinson, Xani Kolac, Davey Lane, Brett Wolfendon and Shane O’ Mara.

“Working with musicians so dexterous and willful, more songs were written in a fever, throwing the script away to include songs of devotion and delusion, always with the actor shadowing and studying the action, unable to leave old habits.”

In the lead-up to the album’s release, Rogers unveiled a series of monologues (below) giving us a little more insight into his thespian protagonist.

Tim Rogers will be touring nationally this April and May, playing songs from his twenty-eight-year career. See those dates and stream ‘An Actor Repairs’ in full below.
