New Release: Will Varley – Spirit Of Minnie / All Those Stars

Will Varley has today announced details of a brand new record, produced by Cameron McVey (Massive Attack, Neneh Cherry, Portishead) and due out February 9th 2018 on Xtra Mile Recordings

Spirit Of Minnie marks a distinct change of direction for the singer songwriter, being the first time he has recorded with a full backing band. The record expands on the pared back musical palette of Varley’s previous sound, all the while retaining his gift for painterly, affirming and immediate lyric writing

Varley has also unveiled his new single All Those Stars, taken from the new record…

Aided by McVey’s nuanced, widescreen production and the warm cascading sound of his new band, All Those Stars offers the perfect first glimpse into Spirit Of Minnie, straddling Will’s sound and style from past to present

The release is also backed by a UK headline tour…
