‘Wake’ is the singer’s fourth LP and comes half a decade after the release of the last (2008’s ‘Succumb’). It’s set to contain eleven new original recordings, along with a cover of Hank Williams’ ‘I’m So Lonesome I Could Cry’.
“I wanted to forge my own direction on this record, write the best songs I could, joining together all the various influences, gathering together all the musicians I have an affinity with, to come up with something that I could say I was proud of” David said in a statement.
“I needed to stop being distracted, to lose myself inside the process, and make the best record I could, a record of substance.”
It’s due to arrive into stores on Friday June 07.
To celebrate the album’s release, David is hitting the road next month for an extensive run of live shows, predominantly across the East Coast. He’ll kick things off by playing songs from the new LP at Adelaide’s iconic Governor Hindmarsh on June 14. Tickets for all shows are on sale now.
