David Gray is "Back In The World"
David Gray is back, and to prove it has revealed his aptly named new single, "Back In The World." The brand new song premiered on Friday on Radio 2, and is the first from Gray's upcoming album "Mutineers." The Brit singer-songwriter has inked a global agreement with Kobalt Label Services (KLS) for the release of the new project. As part of the deal, KLS will partner with Gray's IHT records to release and promote the album, which is due out June 17.
"Mutineers," which is Gray's 10th studio album, will be his first in four years. It was recorded at The Church Studios in London and produced by Andy Barlow. The lead track, "Gulls," was released early via Gray's YouTube channel and also through iTunes.
The album will, of course, be supported by a headline UK tour that will kicks off June 23rd at Birmingham Symphony Hall. The next day Gray will play Royal Albert Hall, then will move across the UK playing venues like Glasgow Royal Concert Hall, Manchester Lowry Theatre, Bristol Colston Hall and Bournemouth Pavilion.
Gray is said to be steering into unfamiliar territory with the material on "Mutineers," and Glide Magazine goes so far as to say that the sound of the release is "a shift instantly audible upon its first listen." Fans in the U.S. will get to hear it first, as Gray recently confirmed he'll be returning to North America for a select run of theater dates this spring. The sold-out, eight-city tour begins in Los Angeles, California on April 24th at Wilshire Ebel Theatre.
David Gray moves "Full Steam Ahead" (Updated February 28, 2013)
The Beatles. The Rolling Stones. The Who. The list of some of the very best British artists of all time could go on and on, and quietly lost in the mix would be David Gray. The singer-songwriter from Cheshire has been topping charts in the UK through the last two decades, has sold more than 12 million albums and has a plethora awards attached to his name, and a creative spark that still burns after all these years.
Three albums, two label splits and no mainstream response might've been enough for even the best of musicians to throw in the towel, but not Gray. He made the decision to self-finance his fourth album, "White Ladder," and release it on his own label, IHT Records, in 1998. It climbed through the Irish Top 30, and ultimately enjoyed multi-platinum sales. All the while, Gray's stock was soaring in Europe and slowly rising in the States. Following a pair of compilations and two reissued records, his sophomore album "A New Day at Midnight" cemented his international breakthrough in late 2002. Three years later, "Life in Slow Motion" blessed the artist with the highest chart rankings of his career.
Seeking a new energy to his music, Gray's "Draw the Line" (2009) served as his extrospective take on the world. It featured guest vocals from Julie Holland and Annie Lennox, and critics raved about the album's finale, "Full Steam Ahead." That project was followed by his most recent effort, "Founding," which bowed in August 2010. It consists of eleven new songs and a second bonus CD of eight previously unreleased songs, with a ninth offered in the digital edition through iTunes.
