Acclaimed guitarist and singer-songwriter John Smith has announced the release of his new album Headlong, due out June 30th, through BARP Records.
Produced by Sam Lakeman, mixed by Ruadhri Cushnan (Mumford & Sons, Flo Morrissey, The Maccabees) and featuring Cara Dillon on BVs, Headlong - dedicated to the memory of John Renbourn - is the follow up to Great Lakes, John’s widely-applauded and Radio 2-supported release of 2013.
Subsequently recorded in Sam Lakeman’s Somerset studios in just over a week, Headlong is marked by the loss of Smith’s close friend, Pentangle’s John Renbourn, who passed away whilst Smith was out on tour. Says John; “He was so much more to me than someone I’d played with, and who had encouraged me. He was a friend as well, so I wanted to reference him on this album- that’s why I’ve dedicated it to his memory”.
