In October, Varley released his new album The Hole Around My Head, the first album release on Yellow Cake, a brand-new record label and artist protection entity set up by internationally renowned record producer Cameron McVey (Massive Attack, Portishead, Sugababes, Neneh Cherry).

Containing the singles “Live Again”, “Pushing Against Us” and “Colour TV”, The Hole Around My Head is the follow-up to 2018’s The Spirit Of Minnie, which was produced by McVey. After close to two decades of hard graft (including relentless touring the UK, Europe and North America alongside Valerie June, Frank Turner, The Proclaimers and Billy Bragg) Varley welcomed the chance to join McVey’s new label. “Will’s the Springsteen of his generation to my ears and sensibilities,” comments McVey. “He’s not really a f**king folk singer is he?! This new record is more of an affirmation than a conscious change of direction. The songs are raw and the production almost painfully too honest at times. Will plays and sings like his studio is on fire and he has to finish before it burns to the ground.”
