the elder statesman of British songwriting and guitar-playing revels in his 2nd act with a set of intimate, stately, melancholic and all-round devastating songs.

This is Chapman at his darkest and most nocturnal, but also his most elegant and subtle, with gorgeous pastoral moments set against some of his most personal moments. once again Steve Gunn produces and plays guitar, and fellow UK song writing hero Bridget St John sings, collaborating with cellist Sarah Smout and legendary pedal steel player BJ Cole. "A rich, haunting, collection of forlorn love songs, apocalyptic picaresques, and bewitching instrumentals that marks the latest stage in a remarkable career renaissance ... by the godfather of new cosmic Americana" - The Guardian, "A finely tuned piece that surveys the looming thunderclouds of mortality and the biblical gloom of the times, and quietly, unshowily transcends both" - Uncut
