Following the release of his second EP ​Five Songs to Briefly Fill the Void​ in March, Matthew “Murph” Murphy ​-​ ​guitarist and lead singer of platinum-selling indie heroes ​The Wombats ​- today announces details of ​Wherever I Go, I Want To Leave​,​ the debut album from his collaborative solo project ​Love Fame Tragedy,​ d​ue for release on 10th July via Good Soldier Songs/AWAL.

Recorded between Los Angeles, London and Sydney, ​Wherever I Go, I Want To Leave,​ sees Murph combine songs from his previous two EPs with seven new offerings, bringing together an impressive list of collaborators including ​Pixies’ Joey Santiago​, ​The Killers’ Mark Stoermer​, ​Bastille’s Dan Smith​,​ Eleanor Fletcher​ of ​Crystal Fighters​, ​Joji Malani (​Gang of Youths​), ​alt-J’s Gus Unger-Hamilton​, Matt​ ​Chamberlain (drums for Kanye West, Frank Ocean and Mac Miller)​, ​Arts vs. Science’s Dan Williams​, ​Lauren Aquilina​,​ Jack River ​and ​Maddi-Jean Waterhouse​.

Named after a revered Pablo Picasso exhibition at the Tate Modern, ​Love Fame Tragedy​’s previous two EPs ​I Don’t Want To Play The Victim, But I’m Really Good At It ​(September 2019) and ​Five Songs To Briefly Fill The Void (March 2020) have garnered widespread support from the likes of Zane Lowe​, ​Annie Mac​, ​NME​, ​The Times​, ​CLASH​, ​Metro​, ​Jack Saunders, Radio X and more, racking up over ​13 million global streams in the process.

Having flown unhindered into the world since its announcement a year ago, ​Love Fame Tragedy is Murph at his most personal and creatively receptive, making ​Wherever I Go, I Want To Leave a gloriously uninhibited collection of synth-pop confessionals ​where hedonism, responsibility, anxiety and the fragility of love all collide.
