Chromatics are finally releasing their long-awaited album Dear Tommy this fall. After much delay and the album being completely scrapped and remade, Johnny Jewel announced last month that it would finally be revealed, “unless I change my mind again,” according to Jewel. Encouragement that it may actually happen comes with the release of the album's lead single and our song of the day, "Black Walls."  The signaturely slick song comes with a self-directed video. Since the release of "Black Walls," Jewel released an instrumental album, Themes for Television, Chromatics released a vinyl-only EP, Camera, and the band shared the second single off Dear Tommy, "Blue Girl."
