David Gray Alibi Single

With "Life In Slow Motion", his seventh album, topping the chart, it is fair to say that David Gray is as popular as he's ever been. Currently on a world tour, he'll return in the summer for festival appearances in Germany and Holland, as well as headlining Wireless in London.

The opening track from Gray's latest record, "Alibi" is a mournful piano ballad with stirring strings and a powerful vocal performance. It lacks the pop sensibilities of "Be Mine" or "The One I Love", so is unlikely to be a huge hit, but anyone who hears it will easily understand why Gray continues to one of the most successful UK male artists.
