Singer-songwriter’s first new material since 2015 arrives on streaming platforms today
Indie-Folk artist Daniel Pearson returns with Pieces Of A Puzzle, his first new release since 2015’s Alone, Together album. The new single combines Springsteen-esque melodies with reverb-laden keyboards and dustbowl guitars in three minutes of emotive country-folk.
“I guess this song, like a lot of my new material, is trying to make sense of the world in 2018” explains the singer-songwriter & multi-instrumentalist. “Like everyone else I’m asking questions, looking for answers, hoping for optimism in pretty dark times – and there’s no fast track or easy way to doing or finding those things. Pieces Of A Puzzle feels like a part of that search, and the music has this new-frontier, big-canyon vibe to it that fits the idea of a journey.”
With two more new singles set to drop in February and March and a highly engaged fanbase on streaming and social media, Pearson is a 21st-century digital artist steeped in analogue musical heritage. In coverage of his three studio albums so far, writers for Uncut Magazine, Drowned In Sound, The Daily Mirror, No Depression, PopMatters, Baeble Music & more have been quick to praise timeless songwriting and poetic lyrics that draw on classic country and indie rock influences. His songs have also been aired by influential DJs on BBC Radio 2, BBC 6Music, KROQ, Lightning 100, Triple J Radio & more, and he’s toured the UK and USA in recent years.
