February 1, 2023 Westerman Announces New Album ‘An Inbuilt Fault’: Hear “CSI: Petralona”

Westerman has announced his sophomore album, An Inbuilt Fault, his follow-up to 2020’s Your Hero Is Not Dead. The London born, Athens, Greece-based musician recorded it with Big Thief’s James Krivchenia and some other musicians out in Los Angeles. He previewed it last fall with “Idol; RE-run,” which landed on our best songs of the week list, and today he’s back with another single, “CSI: Petralona.”

In a statement, Westerman said:

I had the riff for the song and left it lying around with a bunch of other bits and pieces. A friend told me that Tom Waits has this image of having a musical junk drawer of old parts that you haven’t found anything to do with. It came from there. I went to Greece for a month to scope out if I wanted to move here, and a friend encouraged me to write about this strange day I had there. The lyrics were immediate. It’s presented on the album as it was first written. It’s the most autobiographical song on the record.
