Will Samson Shares 'Beyond The Dust' + Album Is Out On Friday!
Will Samson today reveals a new single ‘Beyond the Dust’, taken from his fifth album, 'Paralanguage', his first for Wichita Recordings, which will be released 6 December. Listen HERE.
“’Beyond the Dust’ originates from an old song that I co-wrote with my good friend, Heimer, way back in 2014,” *Samson explains. “There was something about the chords, particularly when played on piano, that really stuck with me. It's essentially a song to remind myself to be grateful. 'Pray for the darkest night that brings the morning' simply acknowledges that the difficult experiences are the ones that often bring about the most growth.”*
'Paralanguage' is also Amazing Radio's Album Of The Week this week + reviews have started to come in:
“Floating melodies and gently skittering beats… There’s a trippy, otherworldly quality to Sansom’s programming and his ethereal, yearning falsetto.” Uncut – 7/10
“A delicate, persuasive balance between ambience and formal song structures… Minimal keyboard patterns are infilled with pattering, glitchy beats... Choir–like wash, pedal steel and double bass bring further colour.” MOJO
Pre-order the album HERE.
Will Samson will celebrate the release with a special stripped-down instore at Rough Trade West on Wednesday 11th. He'll be touring the release in Europe next year - full dates are below with more to be announced soon!
