'Outsider' is Taylor's first album of new material since 2013's 'Fun On Earth'. With much of the album being recorded during lockdown, it finds Taylor in a reflective mood. Across the record he conveys a palpable sense of seclusion, concerns over the passing of time, and tellingly, dedicates it 'to all the outsiders, those who feel left on the sidelines'. A highly personal project, the instrumentation is almost entirely performed by Taylor, with his largely restrained vocals matching the album's contemplative ambience. But Taylor does cut loose along the way with a foray into some hard-riffing blues-rock as well as an adrenalin charged BIG surprise retread of a classic 1965 novelty song.
