WILL VARLEY Spirit Of Minnie LP Vinyl NEW 2018
All Those Stars
Breaking the Bread
Spirit of Minnie
Let It Slide
Will Varley is pleased to announce details of his 5th studio album, 'Spirit Of Minnie', released February 9, 2018 through Xtra Mile Recordings.
Following 2016's much praised 'Kingsdown Sundown' and a sold out show at London's Union Chapel, the new album marks a distinct change of direction for the singer songwriter, being the first time he has recorded with a full backing band. Produced by Cameron McVey (Massive Attack, Portishead, Neneh Cherry), the new album expands on the pared back musical palette of Varley's previous sound, all the while retaining his gift for painterly, affirming and immediate lyric writing.
Aided by McVey's nuanced, widescreen production and the warm cascading sound of his new band, 'All Those Stars' offers the perfect first glimpse into 'Spirit Of Minnie', straddling Will's sound and style from past to present. Counting the likes of Billy Bragg, Valerie June and Frank Turner as his fans, and with tours scheduled across Europe and America, the young songwriter from Deal seems poised for a huge 2018.
