In September Steve Mason announced his new album About The Light with first single "Stars Around My Heart". Today Mason has unveiled the second track, and vibrant jig, "Walking Away From Love".

Mason's upcoming record will be his fourth solo offering, and will be his first since 2016's Meet The Humans.

About The Light is the first album that Mason has worked on with his live band. Mason explains, “I decided with this album that I wanted to get my live band involved at every stage because I wanted to capture the energy that we produce when we play live shows, so this time the band and myself worked on a collection of songs over the course of last year.”

He adds, “When I listen to this album it feels and sounds like the first ‘legitimate’ record that I have ever made. It’s hard to explain but it sounds like a ‘real’ album. I think that is partly the production, the playing and the work that I did with the band for all those months in our rehearsal room on the South Coast.

"It’s a beautiful, confident, positive, angry, loving and gentle album which once again moves what I do forward,” Mason explains. “David Bowie said that you should always be slightly out of your comfort zone if you want to achieve greatness, and for the first time perhaps ever, I deliberately pushed myself into that place. Who doesn’t want greatness?”

About The Light was recorded in various studios in London and Brighton, and saw Mason collaborate with producer Stephen Street.

"Walking Away From Love" is out now. About The Light lands via Double Six on 18 January 2019. Steve Mason will also perform at London's EartH on 7 February 2019 as part of his UK tour. Find out more.
