Richard Dawson - 2020
Richard Dawson, the black-humoured bard of Newcastle, returns to release his sixth solo album ‘2020’, his first since the critically acclaimed, ‘Peasant’.‘2020’ is an utterly contemporary state-of-the-nation study, that uncovers a tumultuous and bleak time.
Having released the album ‘Mogic’ with his band Hen Ogledd (‘the Old North’) in 2018, Dawson decamped to Blank Studio, Newcastle with Sam Grant of Pigs, Pigs, Pigs, Pigs, Pigs, Pigs, Pigs and recorded all the instrumentation for 2020 himself. Nuanced and challenging, the ten songs also conversely feature Dawson’s most melodic moments yet.
Available to independent retailers on red coloured double vinyl with printed inner sleeves and digital download card.
