Approved: The Pictish Trail

The Pictish Trail

The Pictish Trail, aka Johnny Lynch, returns this September with his latest album, ‘Future Echoes’. The latest track from the record, ‘Dead Connections’, was released earlier this week, following on from first single, ‘Far Gone (Don’t Leave)’.

The new album was apparently written in a caravan on the isle of Eigg, off the west coast of Scotland. Lynch then transported himself down to London to record it, working once again with producer Adem Ilhan – or just Adem, as you probably know him.

‘Dead Connections’ is one of Lynch’s most polished productions to date, embracing a full pop sound, but retaining enough of the self-conscious charm that music written in a caravan on a small island should have.
