Willy Mason

He sure has taken his sweet time over it, but Willy Mason is at last done making his third studio LP, the title of which is ‘Carry On’. Featuring production by Dan Carey (Bat For Lashes, MIA), it will mark Mason’s first release via Fiction Records on 3 Dec.

Willy, who will play the first of six consecutive live dates on 1 Dec at Glasgow’s King Tut’s, has this to say about his new recording foray: “It’s a narrative that’s loosely based on me, on my character through performance, and I think that by completing this album, I’m sort of closing the door on that and opening up a whole new world of possibilities”.

Make of that what you will, meanwhile here’s Willy strumming to a live version of ‘Carry On’ track ‘Restless Fugitive':
