Nick Diamonds Announces New Solo LP + Debuts ‘The Sting’
Nick Thorburn – who goes by the stage name Nick Diamonds – has announced that he will put out a new solo album in May and shared the LP’s lead single.
The Unicorns and Islands frontman’s upcoming full-length, City of Quartz, will arrive on May 26 on his own Manque Music label. “The Sting” is the first song to emerge from the album, which follows I Am an Attic, Thorburn’s 2011 effort under his Nick Diamonds moniker. Listen to the new song below:
The dark, stealthy cut would make perfect theme music for a sting of the heist variety. Of course, making theme music is hardly outside the realm of Thorburn’s talents, as he also composed the now-famous score for Sarah Koenig’s popular Serial podcast (Thorburn discussed his experience making the podcast with Diffuser in an interview you can read here).
