It has been 8 years since Richard’s last album and for five of those eight years he was caught up in the mess of the divorce. As a result, multiple songs on the album came out from the experience.

“To be really candid about it I went through a really miserable divorce,” Richard Clapton tells “At the end of my marriage I wrote a couple of songs like ‘Over The Borderline’ which was a last ditched attempt to make amends with my ex-wife. The divorce got very long and drawn out. It went on for about five years which is just absurd. It’s been a difficult period”.

‘Harlequin Nights’ features co-writes with Melbourne songwriter/guitarist Danny Spencer on ‘Vapour Trails’, ‘Run Like A River’, ‘One Fine Day’ and ‘Dancing With The Vampires’, a song about Charlie Sheen.

Richard Clapton ‘Harlequin Nights’ will be released August 4, 2012 through MGM Distribution.
