Having last month shared the track ‘Alluvium’, and ahead of a London live performance this weekend, multi-instrumentalist and singer-songwriter C Duncan today shares more music from his next studio album due for release in 2022.

The Wedding Song” is perhaps Duncan’s most romantic composition to date, an affecting and wistful Sufjan Stevens-ish hymnal which also features his musician parents on strings. The track comes with a similarly beautiful lyric video which features Duncan’s distinctive animation.

Commenting on the track Duncan says: “The Wedding Song is a love song. It’s about contentment and being grateful for what we have, and what we share with one another. Unity is greater than any grand gesture.”

Behind the scenes changes have influenced Duncan’s new recordings with a move to a home near the water in Helensburgh a couple of years ago proving instrumental. Here, Duncan worked on the album in his home studio, writing, recording and producing himself. “It’s a very inspiring place to work,” he says, “and I wanted to return to recording from home as it gives me time and space to develop songs without any outside pressure. I feel very comfortable working alone.”

C Duncan will be performing in London this weekend as one of the artists at Bella Union’s Winter Wonderland concert at the Union Chapel alongside labelmates Deep Throat Choir and Laura Groves.
