James Dey releases new album 'the night-time'

Leeds singer-songwriter James Dey releases a new album 'the night-time' on 17th July.

Ten years have passed since Dey's debut 'Landing Lights', but he has been slowly piecing together a new collection of 12 songs linked by the theme of night-time. It has hushed harmonies, finger-picked guitars, tapped glockenspiels, brushed snare drums, occasional electronic bleeps, muted trumpets and other instruments James could find or borrow but not necessarily play. It tells stories about the night-time - parks closing up at the end of the day, the moment when you drift into sleep, the end of a long journey.

With BBC Introducing picking up lead single 'everything is after' and describing it as "beautiful" and first reviews commenting on the "observational, intelligent stories set to wistful, gorgeous melodies" and the way James "makes unremarkable things seem remarkable", 'the night-time' looks set to quietly invade your stereo this summer.

James Dey will launch his album on Sunday July 17th at Inkwell on Potternewton Lane.
