Willy Mason has today announced the release of his new single 'Pickup Truck' on March 24th, taken from his critically acclaimed third studio album 'Carry On' available now.
Five years in the making 'Carry On' finds Mason at the peak of his powers and being heralded by fans and critics alike as producing his best work to date.
Touring and collaborating 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 debut release 'Where The Humans Eat' which included the now classic track 'Oxygen'.
Produced by Dan Carey (MIA, Hot Chip and Kylie Minogue) 'Pickup Truck' fuses lyrical sentiments of hope, disillusionment, love and lost connections, themes that Mason was able to draw on during a period of decampment and reconnection to his childhood home in Martha's Vineyard
Following a series of sold out dates in 2012, Willy Mason returns to the UK for a string of UK headline dates in March, as well as festival appearances at Isle Of Wight, Cambridge Folk Festival and the Deershed festival in North Yorkshire.
Fans will be able to purchase a very limited edition etched vinyl format of the 'Pickup truck' single that will only be sold on the UK tour dates.
