Steve Mason has announced the release of a new single. A Lot Of Love will be released through Double Six on Monday June 17th 2013.
The single is taken from his recent album, Monkey Minds In The Devil’s Time, which was released in March to rave reviews.
Recorded with Dan Carey in his south London studio, Monkey Minds In The Devil’s Time, is Steve Mason’s second album for Double Six.
It is an album saturated with politics. With a title referring to the Buddhist term for an easily distracted brain, it’s an album that has been shaped by the current global political climate and the lack of dissenting voices in music and popular culture in general.
The righteous, undaunted anger at the heart of the album has helped to create Mason’s best record to date.
Steve released his last album, the much acclaimed Boys Outside in May 2010 - a ‘dub version’ of the album, Ghosts Outside, recorded with UK reggae legend Dennis Bovell, was later released in July 2011.
Steve had previously recorded under the guises of King Biscuit Time and Black Affair following the demise of The Beta Band in 2004.
Mason recently played 3 sold out shows in Glasgow, London & Manchester and has also announced a number of festival appearances over the summer including Glastonbury, T in the Park, Latitude and Green Man.
