Willy Mason Releasing New EP

12/03/2012
.
Willy Mason has set a January 14th release date for his new EP release, Don't Stop Now.

The EP release is designed to give fans a taste of what's to come from Mason's third studio album also due for release later next year.

The EP will be released digitally and as a limited-run of five hundred 10'' vinyl via Communion Records.

Communion is the influential UK based record label founded by Ben Lovett (Mumford and Sons) and Kevin Jones (Bears Den). Communion's love and respect for Willy was cemented through Lovett touring with Mason - most recently on Mumford and Sons' latest Australian Tour - seeing the new songs take shape and evolve live. The label has been the early home to artists including Ben Howard, Michael Kiwanuka, Gotye and Daughter.

Dan Carey (M.I.A., Hot Chip, Bat For Lashes) produced the first three tracks of the EP, and the fourth and final title track "Don't Stop Now" is a collaboration that was written and produced with a friend from Willy's home state of Massachusetts. The EP fuses Mason's unique vocals with lyrics that draw on sentiments of hope, disillusionment, love and lost connections. It is anchored by new single "I Got Gold," which was Zane Lowe's "Hottest Record In The World" only a couple of weeks ago. You can watch the music video here.

Willy is also excited to embark on a North American tour beginning on January 13 in Montreal. Having recently completed a run of shows supporting friend and Mercury Music Prize nominee Ben Howard, Mason is currently playing a string of his own sold out shows in the UK.
