Matt Berry has announced details of his new album, ‘The Small Hours’.

The actor/musician will release his latest record on September 16 via Acid Jazz. It succeeds ‘Music For Insomniacs’, which was released in 2014.

‘The Small Hours’ explores themes of death, religion, loneliness and the changing of the seasons, according to a press release.


Berry has shared the first track from the record, called ‘Obsessed And So Obscure’. Listen to it below.

‘The Small Hours’ was recorded at Kent’s Rimshot Studio, using a 60-year-old handbuilt Decca desk, and Berry’s own south London studio.

Berry said of the album: “[The album] refers to the small hours before dawn when you and me worry about things. It can be an intensely quiet time and so all your thoughts and fears can be amplified.”

Berry will tour the UK in October with his band The Maypoles. Tickets are on sale now.

Birmingham, Academy 2 (October 25)
