David Gray has announced that he will return with his first album for four years – ‘Gold In A Brass Age’ – along with some super tour dates next year.

“With this album, my default position was to do everything differently”, says Gray. “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”.

The first single is ‘The Sapling’, which you can listen to here:
