Luke Evans has announced his second studio album.

The follow-up to his 2019 debut 'At Last' is called 'A Song For You' and will arrive on November 4 via BMG.

It draws its title from the Donny Hathaway song that's one of the actor and singer-songwriter's all-time favourites, and with which he opens the record. Speaking about the recording process, during which he worked with songwriter Amy Wadge, he commented:

"I wrote it in Florida during lockdown, as the sun was coming up over the Atlantic. I was sitting on the beach and the horizon was as blue as the sea. You couldn’t see the difference between the two. Then three hours later, I zoomed with Amy in Pontypridd and we completed a demo within two hours. That's really amazing for me, because I'd never written. I knew that I could do it, but I just needed to be guided. And who better to do that with than Amy Wadge?"

As a preview, Evans has shared the single Horizons Blue, which deals in hushed yet powerful vocals over strummed acoustic guitar and breezy strings. The record will also feature the 43-year-old duetting with Nicole Kidman on Say Something and Charlotte Church on Come What May.

He concluded: "I just feel really lucky as a singer, my first love, to do it again, and to sing these magical songs on an album which I'll have for the rest of my life. I want everyone else to share that joy, too."
