Willy Mason announces new album, 'Carry On'
Following a busy summer of festival shows, Willy Mason has announced details of his third album.
The new album, Carry On, will be released on December 3rd via Fiction Records (his first for the label) and was produced by Dan Carey (MIA, Hot Chip).
"I think of this record as the third and final chapter to a particular narrative that started with Where the Humans Eat," says Mason. "It's a narrative that’s loosely based on me, on my character through performance, and I think that by completing this album, I'm sort of closing the door on that and opening up a whole new world of possibilities."
Check out his forthcoming tour dates, and a video of him performing 'Restless Fugitive', below.
