Willy Mason news and gigs!

Willy Mason has announced his much-anticipated return with the release of ‘Restless Fugitive’, the first track – and free download – to be taken from his forthcoming third studio album (his first for five years).

‘Restless Fugitive’ can be streamed via the embeddable Soundcloud link here:

Willy’s as-yet-untitled album was recorded over the course of 2011 in south London with producer Dan Carey (MIA, Hot Chip, Franz Ferdinand) and will to be released later this year. Clocking in at over 6 minutes, ‘Restless Fugitive’ is the first fruits of the record and premiered on the Guardian’s music pages yesterday afternoon:

“The album itself is about growing up and trying to find one’s place” Mason says. “I think of this record as the third and final chapter to a particular narrative that started with ‘Where the Humans Eat'”.

‘Restless Fugitive’ is also available to stream on his YouTube channel:

Mason will be making a live return in March with his newly expanded band, unveiling new material on dates supporting Mumford & Sons, at SXSW and finally heading to London for a two shows at Hoxton Bar & Kitchen on the 26th & 27th March.
