David Gray enters UK Album Chart at No. 10
Congratulations to David Gray whose latest album, ‘Mutineers’, has entered the official UK album chart at No. 10. The new long-player is Gray’s tenth studio album and his first in four years and has been described as “Easily his best work since ‘Babylon’s’ ubiquity” in Q Magazines 4 star review.
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.” The result is an album that seems to fizz with the joy of its own assembly and finds Gray steering into unfamiliar territory while cultivating a pugnacious but respectful relationship with his own history. “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,” says Gray.
