David’s Lyre Announces Debut Album ‘Picture of Our Youth’

David’s Lyre, the solo project of London-based singer-songwriter Paul Dixon, has announced the release of his debut album ‘Picture of Our Youth’, which is due out on 20th February. The album will be released on a pay-what-you-want basis exclusively from Bandcamp. Album track ‘This Time’ is available to listen to below.

According to Dixon, the album had originally been due out last year, but the release was cancelled when he split from his label. Speaking about this experience in a recent post, he said: “The hardest part of this process has been creating music I felt excited about and proud of, but not being able to share it with you. I remain hugely grateful for the opportunities and patronage given to me, but it is evident that the natural tension in the relationship between art and business within the music industry is currently at its most strained. I join an ever-expanding group of artists who are opting out of this model in order to bring you, the fans, our best. I leave you with ‘Picture of Our Youth’ and hope that you choose to journey with me into my new projects and beyond.”

David’s Lyre will be on tour with Spector next month – see below for dates.
