David Gray Announces First LP In Four Years 'Gold In A Brass Age' And Accompanying Spring Tour

Thursday, 01 November 2018 Written by Jon Stickler

David Gray will return with his 11th album in March.

The singer-songwriter will put out his first collection of new material in four years, 'Gold In A Brass Age', on March 8 through IHT Records/AWAL Recordings, accompanied by an extensive 17-date tour across the UK and Ireland, including stops in Cardiff, Glasgow, London, Belfast and Dublin. Tickets go on general sale at 10am on November 9.

Produced by Ben DeVries, son of producer and soundtrack composer Marius, the follow up to 2014's 'Mutineers' finds Gray exploring new electronic textures and sounds, while the album’s title is drawn from Raymond Carver’s short story Blackbird Pie. Gray said:

"With this album, my default position was to do everything differently. I didn’t think 'this would be a good hook' or 'these lyrics could work for a chorus'. I was keen to get away from narrative. Instead of writing melodies, I looked for phrases with a natural cadence, so that the rhythm began with the words. I reimagined where a song might spring from and what form it could take."
