LIVERPOOL singer-songwriter Nick Ellis is set to return to Wirral this week for a special performance of his latest album, 'Adult Fiction'.

Performing a style of 'streetscape narrative-noir', Nick will perform at Thornton Hough's Village Club on Friday, November 3 as part of a small tour showcasing his latest work.

Adult Fiction is based on folklore passed on to Nick by his aunt, Molly Amero.

Nick explained:"Adult Fiction is a novel set to music.

"Each song is a chapter based on an old folklore passed on to me by my 105 year old Aunt, Molly Amero, in the last days of her life.

"It is a story about an architect who built one of Liverpool’s most mystifying and beautiful landmarks, the Princes Road Boulevard, located in the Toxteth Park area."

A follow-up to his hugely successful debut surrealist-folk album 'Daylight Ghosts', the album follows an architect responsible for the design of the Princes Road boulevard which brings the community together in Toxeth.

His aim was to create a setting so grand that he and his love could 'waltz upon its boulevard to the sweet music of their romance'.

However the story takes a tragic twist with the premature death of his bride-to-be - forcing the architect to wander the empty avenues around in search of her ghost.

The album, out on November 18 is available to pre-order via Mellowtone Records here:
