More info on The Bachelor:
Originally intended as a double-album, The Bachelor began its creation immediately following his tour for 2007's critically acclaimed The Magic Position. Exploring his own doubts on ideas of love and marriage, Patrick found inspiration in experimentation with bleak electronic and industrial sounds, as well as finding solace in some of the classics of his teenage years like The Pixies and The Raincoats. Capturing Patrick's outlook in life at that time, The Bachelor narrates a story of pessimism regarding love to be concluded with a forthcoming sequel album. Always expanding on his repertoire of different musical genres, Patrick's command of baroque pop is taken to a new level with the addition of large choral and string sections, and collaborators such as Alec Empire, Tilda Swinton, Eliza Carthy, and Matthew Herbert.
