Willy Mason Announces New Album 'Carry On' Released August 20th 2013

Five years in the making, Carry On finds Mason at the peak of his powers, being heralded by fans and critics alike as producing his best work to date. Touring and collaborating in 2012 with a new wave of folk influenced artists like Mumford & Sons and Ben Howard, Mason's inimitable gravel deep vocal delivery and unique rhythmic sound has resonated with a new audience as well as more than satisfying his loyal fan base who have followed Masons ascent from the progressive sound of his 2004 release Where the Humans Eat, which included the now classic song "Oxygen".
 
Carry On, produced by Dan Carey (MIA, Hot Chip, Franz Ferdinand), is Mason's debut full-length album for Communion Records, the influential UK based record label co-founded by Ben Lovett(Mumford & Sons). The label has been home to notable artists Ben Howard, Michael Kiwanuka,Gotye, Daughter and more. Communion's love and respect for Willy was cemented through Lovett touring with Mason - seeing the new songs take shape and evolve live. Lovett says:
 
"Willy Mason is one of the greatest Songwriters of our generation. In the UK his music is held up with the legends, and has inspired many people I know. Moving to the US this year and establishing Communion further in North America, I have been stunned by how little familiarity there is with Willy's music, I am stunned by how few people have been touched by his songs. And this emotion, one of injustice, is exactly why I started Communion with my friends and partners in the UK in the first place.
 
It takes Champions to bring this quality of music to the masses, it takes a music magazine editor championing to their readers, a radio DJ championing to their listeners, or the next person who you walk past in the street telling their best friend about the latest Willy Mason record whilst having a beer after a long day at work. It's either that, or we can just be spoon fed the latest musical package off the production line, mass marketed and mass advertised to the point that you know the inane words to the song and you don't even know why.  Willy Mason sings songs to your soul, and it feels good."
