‘Oxygen’ troubadour Willy Mason has announced that he’s set about making a new long player, which will form a follow-up to 2007’s ‘If The Ocean Gets Rough’. He certainly takes his time, that one.

He says: “The album itself is about growing up and trying to find one’s place. I think of this record as the third and final chapter to a particular narrative that started with ‘Where the Humans Eat'”.

Given the leisurely pace at which Mason seems to operate, it figures that ‘the album’ is yet to be given a title or release date. You can, however, stream new track ‘Restless Fugitive’ below right now, and even download it here for free.

Named as the opening act for Ben Howard’s forthcoming UK tour, which runs throughout November, Willy has also confirmed a second date at London’s Hoxton Bar & Kitchen on 27 Mar, the first having sold out.
