'Submarine Races' is Dean's 7th studio album, containing 13 brand new songs, lyrical soundscapes and story-songs, bursting with life, love and survival in a surreal world. One of Dean's best albums, yet. Contains instant classics like 'I'm a Lucky Guy', 'Under the Weather', 'Essie May', 'You're a Criminal Darling', 'Calamity Waltz' and more. Plus a special rebuttal to Half Man Half Biscuits, bestselling EP track, 'The Bastard Son of Dean Friedman' - 'A Baker's Tale', the unvarnished (and hilarious) truth about Nigel Blackwell's dubious origins. Guaranteed to deliver decades of listening pleasure. Order two and give one to a friend! ;-)

Songs: Submarine Races, I'm a Lucky Guy, You're a Criminal Darling (You Stole My Heart), Under the Weather, Luddite's Lament, Calamity Waltz, A Baker's Tale, Essie May, Crazy as a Loon, You're Invisible, Smartest Man in the Whole Wide World, Let the Boys Come Home, Oddballs & Misfits

Dean Friedman entered pop consciousness with his Top 20 hit, Ariel, a quirkily irresistible and uncategorizable pop song about a free spirited, pot-smoking, vegetarian Jewish girl in a peasant blouse. Since then, hits like Lucky Stars, Lydia, Rocking Chair, McDonald’s Girl and Woman of Mine have earned him a loyal international following, devoted to his work as a master songsmith and performer. ... more
