Johnny Flynn live!

Johnny Flynn releases his second single ‘Barnacled Warship’ from his stunning new album ‘Been Listening’ this week and to mark the occasion we’ve got our hands on some brand new video content. Recorded one morning last month, Johnny holed himself (and his band The Sussex Wit) up in the Lexington in North London and set about filming live versions of a handful of tracks from ‘Been Listening’. This is the first glimpse of footage from these Lexington Sessions.

The Sussex Wit are: Adam Beach, Joe Zeitlin, David Beauchamp, James Mathe, and Lillie Flynn.

Johnny tours with Mumford & Sons and Matthew & The Atlas in October before heading out on a huge UK headline tour in December which includes a Christmas headline show at the Shepherd’s Bush Empire on the 10th.

‘Barnacled Warship’, the second single from Johnny Flynn’s acclaimed album ‘Been Listening’, will be released on Monday 16th August on Transgressive Records.

‘Barnacled Warship’ will be available as a digital download, and on limited-edition 7″ vinyl. The vinyl will be backed with two poems, specially written and recorded by Johnny as B-sides for the single.

The animated video to accompany ‘Barnacled Warship’ is directed by Christian DeVita, lead storyboard artist on Wes Anderson’s ‘Fantastic Mr Fox’ as well as Tim Burton’s forthcoming ‘Frankenweenie’.
