David Gray Mutineers Review

David Gray's latest album, Mutineers, was released this week!  This is his tenth album and his first in four years.  To coincide with Mutineers, Gray will tour the UK for the first time in three years. The headline tour, commencing at Birmingham’s Symphony Hall on June 23 will include a show at London’s Royal Albert Hall on June 24.

Recorded in Church Studios, London and produced by Andy Barlow (Lamb), whose brief was to not let Gray “make the same record I’ve made before.” Gray said, “I know I’ve done something here that has an authority that is inspiring me and I don’t have to worry about my past or any of that. The lovely thing about this is we’ve had the time to experiment, and it’s been wonderful.”

David Gray's breakout multi-platinum hit White Ladder, the first of three No.1 UK albums, earned him both Brit and Grammy nominations.  His more recent albums Draw The Line (2009) and Foundling (2010), both reached the Billboard Top 10 in the US.

I am so glad that David Gray has returned to recording.  He has a great voice and this is one of his best albums.  While his voice is unmistakeable, it is apparent that he worked really hard to make Mutineers unique.

You can order Mutineers on either iTunes or Amazon now.
