Duke Special is soon to release a new single 'Portrait' & his stunning new album 'Songs From The Deep Forest' on V2, October 9th. Check out this short film of Duke Special AKA the tirelessly inventive Peter Wilson for a little insight in to all things Special.

A fervent performer who harks back to the pre-rock 'n roll era with dashes of Gershwin and orchestral swing, Duke Special - AKA the tirelessly inventive Peter Wilson - releases his To celebrate, he'll play three live London shows with his equally talented and accomplished band.

A tour de force on vinyl, he's equally vibrant on stage. Often joined by a small collective of eccentric musicians - Temperance Society Chip Bailey (drums /percussion), Councillor Réa Curran (trumpet/ harmonium) and Morris-Dancing Ben Hales (guitar/backing vocals) - the performance easily matches the music for sheer grandeur and individuality.

An accomplished performer, Duke has toured with a host of artists including Rufus Wainwright and Van Morrison – one of Duke's biggest influences. "My sound is a bit vagabondy, but pure and soulful too," he explains. "What I'm trying to put across is something that's more than just a singer-songwriter playing an instrument."

The eagerly anticipated new LP 'Songs From The Deep Forest' is out on October 9th. The LP's first single 'Portrait' is released August 7th.
