Album Premiere: Daniel Meade – Rust

Glasgow singer-songwriter Daniel Meade is back with Rust, a brand-new album of timeless and richly varied Americana. Rust highlights Meade’s confident command of classic country songwriting, bar-room rock n’roll and folk introspection – all delivered for the first time in his earthy Scottish brogue.

We are delighted to bring you the premiere of this sensational new album, which can be streamed in full, below…

“A strange thing happened when I came to lay down the vocal of the first song on this album…the words came out in my own Glaswegian accent” explains Meade. “It felt right and set the tone for the entire record. Rust collects and reflects all of my influences and experiences over the years – musically, mentally and everything else-ly – more concisely & precisely than anything else I’ve done. For me it’s a culmination of all the good and bad I’ve been fortunate enough to go through up to this point. I’ve never felt more grounded and inspired in all my life. I have a quiet confidence in the songs I’m writing that I’ve never really had before, and maybe that’s why I don’t feel the need to affect the accent this time round, who knows. I did
it all at home, wrote and played everything on it, so I feel very connected to it on many levels. It’s already the favourite album I’ve ever made and probably the best. It feels like a debut, and perhaps, in a way, it is.”

Daniel Meade is an acclaimed songwriter from Scotland with a back catalogue rich in roots and country blues music. He’s toured and worked with The Proclaimers, Ocean Colour Scene, Sturgill Simpson, Old Crow Medicine Show (some of whom invited him to make an album in Nashville in 2014), Diana Jones, Pokey LaFarge and Robbie Fulks to name just a few.

Rust is the 9th release in 8 years from the constantly creative musician and offers his most fully realised and memorable set of songs yet.
