Eugene McGuinness to headline Club NME at London's KOKO on June 8
Singer set to release his second full-length album 'The Invitation To The Voyage' on June 25
The singer will play tracks from his forthcoming album, 'The Invitation To The Voyage', which is set for release on June 25. Speaking of the new record, McGuinness says:
In many ways the new record was written with classic records in mind, but I also wanted to make it as modern sounding as possible – I never wanted it to be retro or nostalgic, the songs should mean something to people that are young and experiencing those kind of feelings and situations right now. I don't think anyone has quite done that properly for a while.
McGuinness has previously performed as part of Miles Kane's touring band. He recorded the album – which includes the singles 'Lion' and 'Shotgun' – with producers Dan Carey (MIA, Hot Chip, Santigold) and Clive Langer (Madness, Morrissey).
The full tracklisting is as follows:
'Invitation To The Voyage'
