Hotel Shampoo is the third solo album by Welsh musician and Super Furry Animals front-man Gruff Rhys. It was released on 14 February 2011 through Onvi Records/Turnstile (in the UK) and Wichita (in the US) and peaked at number forty-two on the UK Albums Chart. The album includes the singles "Shark Ridden Waters", "Sensations In The Dark", "Honey All Over" and "Space Dust the latter of which is collaboration with Sarah Assbring and Miles Kane.

Nominally inspired by Gruff Rhys' habit of collecting sample bottles of shampoo at every hotel he’s stayed at over the years, Hotel Shampoo is decidedly not a cosmetic concept album, yet it does have an underlying musical theme. Rhys uses this third solo album to slide into his softer side, creating a sweetly hazy, soft pop fantasia that recalls both Bacharach and the sunnier side of ‘60s psychedelia.

The Super Furry Animals frontman’s third solo album is bubbly, multi-coloured and best not swallowed in large quantities. February 12 2011, 12:01am, The Times. Like the freebie toileteries that inspired its title, the Super Furry Animals frontman’s third solo album is bubbly, multi-coloured and best not swallowed in large quantities. Shark Ridden Waters evokes sun-spangled coastal drives, while Space Dust 2 is a loungetastic duet with the Swedish singer El Perro Del Mar. A whole album of this has you yearning for the Super Furries’ more heavy-duty whimsy.

Hotel Shampoo manages to strike the right balance between Rhys' desire to indulge odd whims, lyrical humor, outright pop, and heartfelt sentiment.

2011 release, the third album from the Welsh singer/songwriter and frontman for Super Furry Animals. Hotel Shampoo is inspired by, and takes its title from, Gruff's extensive collection of mini shampoo bottles and complimentary hotel products acquired whilst touring the world. Having never kept a journal these items have become like diary entries, triggering memories of all those buildings and random people I've met and inspiring songs on the album

Hotel Shampoo is the follow-up to 2007's Candylion. Rhys recently told BBC 6 Music that the new album was planned as a collection of piano ballads. There's no dominant concept I'm happy to say. It's just a straight-up album of confessional piano ballads. I thought I was getting on a bit - the time had come to get a suit and record an album of piano ballads - except it always goes wrong. So that was the plan, and then I went to the studio and things turned out slightly different. Gruff built the hotel in three days and slept in it on the final night of construction. During his time on the road, he claims to have amassed a total of 555 bottles of shampoo or shower gel, 28 sewing kits, 22 razors, 26 packets of shoe polish, 36 toothbrushes or paste, 121 shower caps and eight sanitary bags, 27 combs or brushes, five pairs of slippers, 13 nail files, one badge, one bottle of olive oil and two keys.
