Adam Ant is the Blueblack Hussar in Marrying the Gunners Daughter

"I'm alright! I'm back to normal. I'm excited by my work. The definitions of bipolar disorder are – look it up – sexually promiscuous, dressing up funny, behaving in an unusual manner, spending lots of money erratically, and just generally being a nutcase. Well, I don't know a fucking good rock 'n' roller who doesn't fit all the criteria, so lock everybody up! Lock Keith Moon, Pete Townshend, Jimi Hendrix... who would you not lock up? Cliff, maybe? I'm serious. People don't know anything about mental illness. It's bipolar disorder."

Pollstar Interview

Don’t you have a song about Russell Brand?
That’s on the B-side of a seven-inch vinyl, limited-edition single, “Cool Zombie.” We have a track called “Gun In My Pocket” which addresses that situation which was an incident. …

The new album – Adam Ant Is The Blueblack Hussar In Marrying The Gunner’s Daughter – has been in the works for more than a year. Do you have a release date?
This is an independent label. A lot of artists have their own label, but are owned by a major. This is actually my label and I’m going to do all the business, distribution and manufacturing, which obviously takes longer than normally expected. But it’s all locked in now and we’re going to be putting out a single, which is called “Cool Zombie,” at the end of October with a video. Then I’m going to save it [the album] for the new year because I think it’s kind of best to come in the new year fresh and do it then.
This is a different approach with this record. I’ve prepared for this one for at least a year to 18 months solidly on this, working live. It’s quite a challenging record to do. It’s a learning curve for me … It’s ready. When people hear it, I think they will, hopefully, understand why it took so long.
