Following up his 2012 début ‘Blight & Blossom’, British singer/songwriter, Blair Dunlop is back with his brand new album ‘House Of Jacks’ set for release on May 26th through Rookesmere Records.
One of the most well-crafted folk albums of the year, ‘Blight & Blossom’ set expectations high for Dunlop, and if the first single ‘Something’s Gonna Give Way’ from the new album is anything to play your cards on, it won’t disappoint.
“The song is a classic battle between strong and weak… or at least perceived weakness! Scratch Pictures’ great treatment of the video has brought this into a stark reality and it seems to be getting much discussion. I’m pleased it’s getting the attention it is…if only to raise conversation around a difficult and challenging area.”
Blair is also set to tour the UK in support of his new record. Catch him at the following dates:
21st The Basement, York
24th Fruit, Hull
25th Bearded Theory Festival, Derby
