Billy Bragg has released new single Ten Mysterious Photos That Can’t Be Explained, which will be the last track of his upcoming tenth album The Million Things That Never Happened, released on October 8th 2021. The track, released by Cooking Vinyl is co-written by Bragg’s son, Jack Valero.

About the track, Bragg stated: “I like my albums to finish with a stomper. My son Jack helped me out with this one. He’s a pretty good songwriter himself, and when I played him what I had and he said it’s good but it needs some work, I said well you go and do it then. So, he came back and he’d added a middle section and, you know what, he was right. I was really pleased. People have asked if there might be a ‘father and son’ album down the tracks. All I will say is you never know what the future might bring. ‘Ten Mysterious Photos…’ is about life online, both good and bad. I try not to get sucked down too many wormholes, but it can happen.”
