April 1st, 2014 — GRAMMY nominated artist David Gray is proud to announce the release of his long-anticipated tenth studio album, Mutineers. The collection will debut on June 17th, 2014 and marks the artist’s first release for Kobalt Label Services. To celebrate the release, Gray has unveiled the video for “Gulls,” the first track from the album to be streamed ahead of release. PRESS HERE to watch now.


Mutineers  finds the singer-songwriter steering into unfamiliar territory while cultivating a pugnacious but respectful relationship with his own history. The sound of the release is a shift instantly audible upon its first listen. In addition to the change in tone, there’s a rising sense throughout the record of an artist liberated from even his own expectations. From the opening affirmation of the single, “Back In The World,” to its conclusion, David sees the album’s ancestry as more in the neighborhood of John Martin’s Small Hours than predecessors in his own catalog. 




Gray’s collaborator, producer and occasional combatant during this raid on new horizons was Lamb’s Andy Barlow. Together, the two artists were able to create an experiment that seems to fizz at the joy of its own assembly while recalling the sense of familiar spontaneity and feeling that was found in a bedroom studio – the location where David Gray made 1997’s multi-platinum White Ladder.




In addition to the album announcement,Gray recently confirmed that he will be returning to the United States for a select run of theater dates dates this spring. The sold-out, eight-city tour kicks off in Los Angeles, CA on April 24th at Wilshire Ebel Theatre. Full routing below.
