About The Light
Released: 18th January 2019
Indies-only limited silver vinyl edition.
Steve Mason (BETA BAND/KING BISCUIT TIME/ BLACK AFFAIR) releases his fourth solo album ‘About The Light’ via Domino Recording Company’s Double Six imprint. The album was produced by Stephen Street, and Mason also enlisted his live band to join him in the studio for the first time.
“I decided with this album that I wanted to get my live band involved at every stage”, says Mason. “I wanted to capture the energy that we produce when we play live shows, so this time the band and myself worked on a collection of songs over the course of last year”.
“When I listen to this album it feels and sounds like the first ‘legitimate’ record that I have ever made”, he continues. “It’s hard to explain but it sounds like a ‘real’ album. I think that is partly the production, the playing and the work that I did with the band for all those months in our rehearsal room on the South Coast”.
He concludes: “It’s a beautiful, confident, positive, angry, loving and gentle album which once again moves what I do forward”.
