One Plus One Is One
Born in the U.K.

One Plus One Is One is the fourth studio album by Badly Drawn Boy in 2004. It is his last album for XL Recordings.

Damon Gough (Badly Drawn Boy) said about the album: "It’s still about relationships but not so much about just me and Claire this time, it’s about wider friendships. I’m asking people not to wish their lives away. But most of the time, through the songs, I’m telling myself these things. I can be quite a dark person, a born worrier, and I think that sometimes these songs are a message to myself to see the brighter side. The last album was thematic too but born mostly out of the frustrations of being away from home. For this record I was at home and now it seems I’m looking out at the world from there."
