The Fluffy Jackets to unveil new single in tribute to Manny Charlton
In a separate announcement, The Fluffy Jackets has unveiled a new single that pays homage to their late producer Manny Charlton.
The Fluffy Jackets had started planning their third album with Manny Charlton in March 2022, just a few months prior to his passing in July 2022. Charlton suggested that The Fluffy Jackets should include "Goodbye" in their upcoming album, leading to the creation of a demo at Charlton's Madmento Studio in Cordoba. However, the song was never completed.
The Fluffy Jackets front man Helge Rognstad comments: "Losing Manny was absolutely heartbreaking. So, after that happened, it gradually dawned on me that The Fluffy Jackets should fulfil his last wish. So, this single is a labor of love and a tribute to our dear friend and mentor. It is our way of honoring his memory."
On the single, The Fluffy Jackets is joined by one of Croatia's top professional drummers; Matija Bajtal, who is appearing with The Fluffy Jackets for the very first time.
Bassist Neil Murray, the founding member of Whitesnake, is also joining the for the release, having been a consistent contributor to The Fluffy Jackets' albums to date.
