El Tapado is the new album from Alan Tyler, released on 5 January 2018 by Hanky Panky Records.
Written and recorded on an OP-1 programmable synthesiser, and then completed at Sean Read's Famous Times studio, the album is a new departure for the Rockingbirds frontman,
which he describes as "post truth melancholia with electro hooks and country harmonies."
