Earlier today, singer-songwriter David Gray announced the details for the release of his new album, Gold In a Brass Age
, his 11th studio album. It comes out on March 8, and Gray’s tour in support of the disc includes a June 8 stop at the Akron Civic Theatre.
“With this album, my default position was to do everything differently,” Gray says in a press release about the album and accompanying tour. “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.”
will be available for pre-sale on Monday, and a general on-sale begins at 10 a.m. on Friday, Nov. 9.
