We are thrilled to announce that John Smith’s forthcoming album The Fray will officially be released on March 26th worldwide.
A note from John on the record:
I hope this finds you well and in good health! I think we all had a tough time of it last year. I felt myself going through the mill, along with so many others.
However, the experience resulted in a new collection of songs.
Songs about love, loss and ultimately hope.
And so my new album ‘The Fray’ will be released March 26th on Commoner Records/Thirty Tigers worldwide. I wanted you to be the first to hear about it.
Recorded at Real World Studios in Wiltshire and produced by Sam Lakeman and myself, ‘The Fray’ features guest performances from Sarah Jarosz, Bill Frisell, Lisa Hannigan, The Milk Carton Kids, Jess Staveley-Taylor and Courtney Hartman.
Ordinarily I would hit the road for fifty nights to tour a new record! For this release however, I’ve put together a bunch of special signed pre-order packages, available only through my website. There are T-Shirt bundles, exclusive recordings, guitar lessons, private concerts, a high-quality ticketed livestream event on the weekend of release and more.
‘The Fray’ comprises twelve of the most personal and, I think, the most honest songs I’ve ever written. I can’t wait for you to hear it.
With love & thanks,
