Calamateur is the first artist featured … and the last … in that short clip.

Jesus is for Losers

Calamateur has a new album out/on the way called Jesus is for Losers.

There are two tracks available now, with more to follow over the next few weeks.

The album is a collection of new Calamateur songs, some re-worked old ones and several cover versions, including the title track (available now) which is a cover of an incredible song by Steve Taylor. You can read more about the making of the album on [Calamateur’s] blog.

Also included in the download is a gorgeous 9-page digital booklet with artwork, credits and essay.

Give it a listen. Give it a read.
