David Gray will be heading out on an extensive tour in 2019 in support of his new album ‘Gold In A Brass Age’. 

A week after the Friday 8th March release of ‘Gold In A Brass Age’, David Gray will kick off his UK tour at Cardiff St David’s Hall before playing shows in Cambridge, London, Brighton, Southend, Manchester, Nottingham, Gateshead, Liverpool, Bournemouth, Birmingham, York, Glasgow and Belfast.

Tickets to the tour are on sale now. 

‘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. The album’s striking artwork - for which Gray sought out Peckham-based tattoo artist London Boy - depicts an Emperor moth with the City of London captured between its wingspan.

Speaking about the creation of ‘Gold In A Brass Age’, Gray says: “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 reimagined where a song might spring from and what form it could take.”
