CHARLIE CUNNINGHAM launches his new album ‘PERMANENT WAY’
Watch the stunning live session of ‘Permanent Way’ here.
Having clocked up 5 million streams in the last 2 months for both the title track and follow up single ‘Sink In’ Charlie Cunningham releases his second album ‘Permanent Way’ released on Infectious / BMG.
On ‘Permanent Way’, Cunningham laughs in the face of ‘difficult second album’ syndrome and ‘acoustic-singer-songwriter’ imagery with boosted colours and dynamics, while retaining the essence of the man’s achingly personable appeal.
‘Permanent Way’ documents life’s uncertainties: the need for intimacy and love, but also space and independence. “I’m quite a private person outside of performing”
Cunningham admits. “There is some autobiographical stuff in the lyrics, but it flits in and out quite a lot; it’s much more about people generally and their interactions”
Duncan Tootill returns to co-produce in part, but the album was predominantly put together alongside producer/engineer Sam Scott. A trip to LA for a session with producer Rodaidh McDonald (The XX, King Krule), added ‘Don’t Go Far and two other songs to the record.
Cunningham has just completed an extensive tour of the US ahead of a one-off headlining show at Queen Elizabeth Hall at London’s Southbank Centre on June 12th. Along with his band he takes to the road again in October for dates across Europe ahead of a headlining tour in November.
