Delicate Steve releases his new album 'This is Steve' through ANTI at the end of January, the first single from the LP is 'Winners' for which Steve has shot a video at one of his favourite childhood spots, Steve explains: "'Winners' is not about life's winners - it's about things not being as they seem. I wanted this video to magnify that aspect of life, and what better place to do it than my childhood boardwalk at the Jersey Shore. Though after filming this video, I've come to believe that maybe things are as they seem."
Having worked with a number of bands and artists within a relatively short amount of time, Steve has developed quite a name for himself, having been championed by the likes of Dirty Projectors, tUnE-yArDs and David Byrne. If that wasn't enough name-dropping, he also played guitar for Paul Simon on his latest record! 'This is Steve' was self-produced and Steve also plays all the instruments on the album.
'Smalls Change (Meditations Upon Ageing)' arrives in April.
The two awards have made for a great 72nd birthday present for the country music icon.
