Drum Roll Please – David Gray’s “Mutineers” is COMING SOON!
I received a copy of the Mutineers album early in exchange for my post via One2One Network.
I am thrilled to bring you news that David Gray is announcing the release of his long anticipated tenth album – Mutineers – on June 17, 2014.
Mutineers finds the singer-songwriter steering into unfamiliar territory while cultivating a pugnacious but respectful relationship with his own history. The sound of the release is a shift instantly audible upon its first listen. In addition to the change in tone, there’s a rising sense throughout the record of an artist liberated from even his own expectations. From the opening affirmation of the single, “Back In The World,” to its conclusion, David sees the album’s ancestry as more in the neighborhood of John Martin’s Small Hours than predecessors in his own catalog.
In addition to the album announcement, David recently returned to the United States for a select run of theaters which was SOLD OUT!

Gray’s collaborator, producer and occasional combatant during this raid on new horizons was Lamb’s Andy Barlow. Together, the two artists were able to create an experiment that seems to fizz at the joy of its own assembly while recalling the sense of familiar spontaneity and feeling that was found in a bedroom studio – the location where David Gray made 1997’s multi-platinum White Ladder.
David Gray has established himself as one of the UK’s leading music artists both at home and overseas. Gray’s commercial success is also backed up by a critical consensus and countless accolades. His 2009 release Draw The Line was met with critical praise and garnered the artist a series of high profile television appearances, as well as two sold out tours of the US. Foundling, Gray’s 9th studio album picked up where Draw the Line left off and created a new chapter of lush, soulful songs that found the artist returning to his folk music roots. Foundling debuted at #9 on Billboard’s Top 200 Albums chart, marking Gray’s highest release position of his career and was met with critical praise by Entertainment Weekly who described it as “all warm arrangements and real emotion,” while USA Today said “ ‘A Moment Changes Everything’ is his most infectious single since 2000’s ‘Babylon.’ ”
I have been waiting and waiting for this release. Well, technically this pre-release. Oh you all need to watch for it. It was definitely worth the wait. I love his sound. It is an earthy, sexy sort of sad but slightly happy sound. Yup that about sums it all up. My daughter have been enjoying listening to this newest album all night. We recently started taking piano lessons together so she has a new appreciation for new music and new sounds. David Gray will surely become one of her favorites – as well as mine. This is the kind of music I can simply relax to. Excellent!
