Released: 30th Jun 2017


the acclaimed guitarist and singer-songwriter’s 5th studio outing is an endearing collection of intimate, soulful songs that left us breathless.

Produced by Sam Lakeman, mixed by Ruadhri Cushnan (Mumford & Sons, Flo Morrissey, The Maccabees) and featuring Cara Dillon on backing vocals, Headlong - dedicated to the memory of John Renbourn - is the follow up to Great Lakes, John's widely-applauded and Radio 2-supported release of 2013. Whilst John Smith has stood still just long enough to commit this new album to record, there's yet little danger of moss gathering. “’far too good’ has the easy bounce and swing of john martyn at his most bucolic, ‘coming home’ possesses a sweet folk simplicity, while the searing thrum of ‘undone’ is testament to how powerful his music can be” – uncut.
