Julian Velard – Don’t Ask Me About Hamilton (Anymore) / Goodbye Hollywood, Hello Adulthood

For years now, Julian Velard has been working hard on his career. And successfully, although his profile is particularly high in the United States. So, it seems like he thought: ‘perhaps recording an album about failure will be my ticket to stardom’. Chances are, that was some really good thinking…

On Fancy Words For Failure, Velard gets more up close and personal than ever before. Probably because there were quite some changes in his personal life, recently. He married and became a father. No failures there, then. Musically the album is flawless as well, positioning itself somewhere halfway Billy Joel and Harry Connick Jr.

The record features The Night Ed Sheeran Slept On My Couch (released in 2015 already) and his recent single Sweatpants On The Living Room Floor. But the album opener Don’t Ask Me About Hamilton (Anymore) is my favourite.

This track is referenced in that other favourite of mine: Goodbye Hollywood, Hello Adulthood. Perhaps the most prophetical title of them all…
