Accident Dancing is a book of poetry by artist and musician Keaton Henson, detailing his life in fragments, from the extreme to the mundane. Accompanied by evocative pencil illustrations, it is an intimate and unapologetically personal insight into this extremely emotive artist.
Keaton writes, “‘Accident Dancing’ is everything the way I remember it; i.e. fragmented, chaotic and often grammatically incorrect. I hope it feels authentically like a memory if nothing else. It was just something I needed to shake from my head.”
Due to be published on 22 October 2020 by Faber Music, the poetry book is available to pre-order here.
Accident Dancing is Keaton Henson’s third publication to be released by Faber Music, following the limited edition ‘5 Years’ and FutureBook of the Year 2018 finalist ‘The Tallowmere Annual’.
The publication coincides with a new album, ‘Monument’, which will be released on 23 October 2020 through Play It Again Sam. It will be Keaton’s first album since 2016’s ‘Kindly Now’ LP and is an album about loss and dealing with losing the ones we love.
