New single from Gavin Glass
Gavin Glass Releases his new single ‘BLEED’ on the 20TH AUGUST via iTunes
‘BLEED’ is the second single to be taken from Dubliner Gavin Glass’ critically acclaimed third album, ‘Myna Birds’. It combines Glass’ effortless song writing style with beautiful arrays of piano, bass and ceremonious guitar licks in a mesh of Summery Motown bliss.
Glass spent the last two years working & touring with the Mercury nominated Lisa Hannigan as a multi-instrumentalist in her band and contributed to her recent album ‘Sea-Sew’.
‘Myna Birds’, which features collaborations with members of The Black Crowes & Wilco, was recorded in Nashville, Tennessee during a break from Lisa Hannigan’s recent North American tour. An introduction to Steve Gorman of the Black Crowes after a show in Boston led to an all-star band being put together, featuring: Audley Freed (Black Crowes, Train, Cry of Love, Dixie Chicks), Ken Coomer (Wilco, Uncle Tupelo) and Jen Gunderman (Jayhawks). Gavin and the band set-up camp in Nashville’s Eastwood Studios and recorded the album on the endangered format of analogue tape over an intensive two-weeks in March of last year. The album was then completed with the help of friends back in Dublin in between Hannigan’s hectic touring schedule. ‘BLEED’ is the 2nd single from the album, following ‘Just like Rome’ which graced radio playlists across the country and included the B-Side ‘Ooh LA LA’ (Faces Cover) that Glass recorded for the METEOR TV ADVERT.
‘Myna Birds’ was released on Orphan records + is available in all stores NOW!
