David Gray has a new album dropping June 17th, Mutineers, and thanks to an advanced free download from One2OneNetwork, I can tell you that it is amazing! If you’re a fan of his work, you probably already know about the album and his tour this summer. But if you don’t know David Gray, you should!
Mutineers is by far my favorite David Gray album (though, who couldn’t love the White Ladder album?) It’s melodic, relaxing and everything I want in my favorite music. I was pulled in from the very first track, Back in the World. It’s upbeat, energetic and lively, but not loud and hard on the ears like some other artists. I’ve been listening to Mutineers in the car, in the bed (yes, I’ve fallen asleep listening to the album twice) and in my office while working. As it gets warmer outside, I can see myself sitting outside with a glass of wine and Mutineers in the background. David Gray makes great music to do pretty much anything by.
Of the 11 songs on the album, there is only one I don’t really care for – Cake and Eat It – and that’s not that it’s bad per se, just repetitive, a little too repetitive for me. The rest of the album is wonderful and I just skip that track when it shuffles up.
David Gray is touring this summer! I’m thrilled that he’s coming to my city, but sad that I’ll be on vacation when he does. Bummer! The US tour starts August 1st in Massachusetts and hops around the US through September. You can see the full list of tour dates here. You can also connect with David Gray and all of his amazing music on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and Google+.
