David Gray: Mutineers tour of the UK

david grayDAVID GRAY ANNOUNCES UK DATES AND NEW SINGLE

David Gray has announced a six-date tour of the UK across late November and early December 2014, kicking off in Southend on November 27. The shows are set to end an exceptional year for the singer-songwriter, with Gray’s tenth studio album Mutineers receiving wide-spread critical acclaim, sell-out tours on both sides of the Atlantic and a recent headline show at London’s Roundhouse, as part of this year’s iTunes Festival. In support of the tour, Gray will release a new single ‘Birds Of The High Arctic’ through iht Records via Kobalt Label Services on November 17. Tickets for the tour go on-sale Friday, September 26 at 9am.

Recorded in Church Studios, London and produced by Andy Barlow (Lamb), Mutineers is Gray’s tenth studio album and his first in four years. It’s an album that seems to fizz with the joy of its own assembly and finds the artist steering into unfamiliar territory while cultivating a pugnacious but respectful relationship with his own history. “I know I’ve done something here that has an authority that is inspiring me and I don’t have to worry about my past or any of that. The lovely thing about this is we’ve had the time to experiment, and it’s been wonderful,” says Gray.

David Gray captured the world’s attention with his breakout multi-platinum hit White Ladder, the album went on to sell seven million copes and was the first of three No.1 UK albums, earning him both Brit and Grammy nominations. He has continued to build on this success, with recent albums Draw The Line (2009) and Foundling (2010), both reaching the Billboard Top 10 in the US.
