‘Office Politics’
The Divine Comedy Release Brand New Album June 7th
Lead Track ‘Queuejumper’ Out Now – Listen Here
11 Date UK & Ireland Tour Announced For October


Neil Hannon, one of the country’s foremost songwriters, releases a wonderful new Divine Comedy album ‘Office Politics’ on June 7th. It’s the follow-up to the acclaimed top ten 2016 album ‘Foreverland’.

“Office Politics” is a 16 track tour de force full of inventive, timeless music peopled with a typically irreverent cast of characters. “It has synthesizers. And songs about synthesizers,” Neil says. “But don’t panic. It also has guitars, orchestras, accordions, and songs about love and greed.” But ‘Office Politics’ central characters are the machines. Or ‘Infernal Machines’ as one track rages.



“I do try to make normal records,” Neil says with a smile. ”But it always seems to wander off into odd territories.” And for that we should be thankful.

The Divine Comedy will play the following UK and Ireland headline tour dates. Tickets on sale now.
