Tompkins Square has released a surprise posthumous record from Michael Chapman, the influential English guitarist and singer-songwriter who died in September at age 80. It’s titled Another Fish, and it arrives on what would have been Chapman’s 81st birthday.
Another Fish features seven tracks, all untitled. According to a statement from Tompkins Square, the project was intended to be a companion to Chapman’s 2015 album Fish and was released with the blessing of Andru Chapman, his longtime partner. Chapman issued more than 40 albums over his lifetime, from his 1969 debut Rainmaker through 2019’s True North.
