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.

His 2009 release Draw The Line was met with critical praise and garnered the artist a series of high profile television appearances, as well as two sold out tours of the US. Foundling, Gray’s 9th studio album picked up where Draw the Lineleft off and created a new chapter of lush, soulful songs that found the artist returning to his folk music roots. Foundling debuted at #9 on Billboard’s Top 200 Albums chart, marking Gray’s highest release position of his career and was met with critical praise by Entertainment Weekly who described it as “all warm arrangements and real emotion,” while USA Today said “ ‘A Moment Changes Everything’ is his most infectious single since 2000’s ‘Babylon.’ ”
