We’re thrilled to know there is a brand new full-length album on the way from the immensely talented singer-songwriter Jono McCleery. Entitled Pagodes, it follows his majestic and widely acclaimed 2011’s There Is and it arrives on October 2nd via If Music.
His marvellous guitar playing and soulful and powerful singing shine even stronger in Pagodes. As the press release describes, “it’s an album that’s difficult to turn away from, full of beautiful melody, futuristic production flourishes and lyrics that don’t shy away from darkness, but always alight on uplifting conclusion.”.
We’re itchy with anticipation for the album to drop but we can already wrap our ears around the first single, an utterly beautiful interpretation of Robert Wyatt’s ‘Age of Self’. Here it is.
In other related news, Jono McCleery will celebrate the album release with a performance in London at Elektrowerkz on October 13th.
