David Gray will release a deluxe version of his critically acclaimed and UK top 10 new album Mutineers on March 3, 2015.
Available through iht Records / Kobalt Label Services, the extended format will include the multi-Grammy Award winning LeAnn Rimes joining Gray on vocals for the Radio 2 play-listed ‘Snow In Vegas, alongside six live tracks recorded during his London Roundhouse headline show at last year’s iTunes Festival, featuring live-versions of three of Gray’s best loved songs from across his 21 year career; ‘Sail Away’, ‘Nemesis’ and ‘My Oh My’, plus live-versions of Mutineers Radio 2 play-listed singles ‘Birds of the High Artic’ and ‘Back In The World’.
Described on release as ‘Nothing less than an artistic rebirth” (Evening Standard), “easily his best work since ‘Babylon’s’ ubiquity” (Q) and “an artist at the height of his powers” (Sunday Times), Gray’s new and tenth studio album Mutineers has seen the multi-platinum, Brit & Grammy nominated artist, in his own words, ‘tear up the past and let it go.’
It has also led Gray on an extensive and successful run of touring on both sides of the Atlantic, with three sell-out headline tours completed in the US and sell-out headline tours across Europe, including two in the UK. Further live dates are to come with Gray set to tour Australia and New Zealand in March & April, before returning to the US on July 17 & 18 for headline shows at the Hollywood Bowl, where he will be joined by the LA Philharmonic Orchestra to perform in front of an audience of 18,000 per night. Further shows for 2015, including the UK, will be announced shortly.
Says Gray, “from the very outset there has been something irrepressible about the Mutineers shows. An eight strong band with seven people singing, wow! When it all cranks up it has nothing less than the air of celebration. By the time we hit the Roundhouse for the iTunes festival last September, both band and new music were in full swing and the sense of joyous uplift was there for all to behold”.
