Pop artist Tripping Jupiter has released Lipstick of The Brave, their debut full length studio LP. In addition to Madstone Rowan (he/they/them), the singer and multi-instrumentalist behind Tripping Jupiter, this album features bass by frequent Bowie collaborator and session musician Gail Ann Dorsey and Poducer Barb Morrison (they/them), a platinum record holder who has worked with Blondie, Rufus Wainwright, Franz Ferdinand, LP. and many more.
The Rock / Pop style of Lipstick of the Brave is something that came easily to Madstone Rowan.
I really connected with my muse on this album. I didn’t ‘think’ these songs out. I let them out. They had to come out. I wrote and sang music I wanted to listen to.
The album features previously released singles “We are Starlight”, “Torn America”,“The Rhythm Falls”, “Time Doesn’t Stop” and the title track “Lipstick of The Brave”. The latter is a “timeless piano ballad with a personal message dedicated to freedom of gender expression”.
