Talk: Gold in a Brass Age

David Gray discusses his storied career as a singer, songwriter and storyteller, and shares insights into his newly released album, "Gold In A Brass Age." With his eleventh studio record, the challenge was to retain the same excitement for music while pushing himself into unfamiliar terrain. You’ll still recognize his gravelly rasp, but his singing is softer, sweeter, more intimate and occasionally falsetto. His lyrics have been transformed too, declamatory tales of love and loss replaced by couplets closer to poetry, and whilst his guitar and piano playing remain, the ushering in of electronica and the exploring of new textures and sound palettes alongside new production techniques has turned his approach to songwriting on its head.
