Daniel Knox has announced his fifth studio album Won’t You Take Me With You, due for release on 15 January via his own label, H.P. Johnson Presents.
The album also includes lead single ‘Fool In The Heart’, unveiled as well today…
Knox’s music has always been filled with wormholes and stories. Characters and places that exist on the fringes of imagination and reality populate his songs – seemingly unobserved. There’s always been a feeling in Knox’s music that these stories are connected, and on this new record it begins to become clear how.
“Every song on Won’t You Take Me With You has a trap door that leads to one or more other songs on the record,” says Knox, but if you look a little deeper, these trapdoors also dip in and out of the mythology that makes up his entire back catalogue. To put it in Daniel’s words, “I wanted the songs to stand apart but still hold hands. It was important to me that these songs all know each other, but not necessarily live in the same time and place.” As a result, the reality begins to reveal itself that these places and these stories only ever fed back to one man – Daniel Knox.
Written and recorded quickly and instinctively in a way that Knox never has before, all the things that make Knox such a unique songwriter come together more assuredly than ever.
