Tuesday 26 March 2019 7:30pm Liverpool Philharmonic Hall
David Gray has announced his new album Gold In A Brass Age - his first album of new material in four years - alongside a UK tour in 2019.
Gold In A Brass Age is defined by an intuitive approach from Gray, exploring new electronic textures and sound palettes, along with new production techniques in the process. Using a cut and paste approach to the arrangement of songs, the album’s atmospheric and experimental undertones are evident throughout.
The album’s title is drawn from Raymond Carver’s short story Blackbird Pie, and informed by the regenerative cut and thrust of Gray’s adopted home of London and a fascination with the natural world, which has long since consumed his time outside of music.
Gold In A Brass Age will be David Gray’s eleventh album in a career that spans over 25 years, several Brit and Grammy nominations, and three No. 1 UK albums, including his breakout multi-platinum White Ladder.
"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 re-imagined where a song might spring from and what form it could take."
Please note there is a limit of 4 tickets per person for this event.
