Music | David Gray announces first new album in four years

David Gray

David Gray has released details for a new album “Gold In A Brass Age” plus a tour of the UK & Ireland for 2019.

It will be Gray’s first album in four years and will be available on 8 March 2019 through IHT Records / AWAL Recordings. First single ‘The Sapling’ out now too which you can hear below.

Speaking about the creation of Gold In A Brass Age, Gray says; “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.”

As for the tour, there will be two nights at Dublin’s Bord Gais Theatre on Saturday 5th and Sunday 6 April.
