New Release: Jon Boden – All The Stars Are Coming Out Tonight

12-time BBC Folk Award winner and ex-Bellowhead frontman, Jon Boden has just shared his new single All The Stars Are Coming Out Tonight. This comes in advance of his new solo album Afterglow which arrives on October 6th

Take a listen to the new track here…

Speaking about the new track, Boden says: “Without easy access to electric light and with a shortage of oil, our lives will again become bounded by the astronomical cycle of the universe, and our relationship with the stars will become closer, uninhibited by artificial light pollution. I wanted the stars to have a big presence in the album, particularly Orion who, as a ‘hunter’, is someone who our hero identifies with as he searches the city for a girl he knew once but hasn’t seen for many years”

Afterglow is the second part of a post-apocalyptic album trilogy from Jon, following 2009’s Songs From The Floodplain, which explored life in a post-peak oil future

He’ll also be taking the record on tour, visiting…
