Marlon Williams Releases New Single

0

Marlon Williams will release his second album, Make Way For Love on February 16  via Caroline Australia. After presenting the “ethereal rocker (American Songwriter) ‘Nobody Gets What They Want Anymore’, a duet with Aldous Harding, Williams now shares ‘What’s Chasing You’ and its accompanying video, directed by Martin Sagadin.

“It’s an earnest question. It’s the only thing I’ve ever really wanted to know of another human being. Like all good questions, it’s childishly simple. We all want to live inside the fears of the ones we love, if not to dispel them then at the very least to understand, empathize and let’s be honest, compare hands. I’m not convinced truly understanding another’s woes would really bring anyone happiness, but I am a nosey boy. What’s chasing you?” – Marlon Williams

Make Way For Love marks Williams’ exponential growth as a songwriter. Throughout 11 original songs, he explores new musical terrain and reveals himself in an unprecedented way in the wake of a fractured relationship.

Make Way For Love was recorded with producer Noah Georgeson and his backing band, The Yarra Benders, in North California’s Panoramic Studios after several weeks of pre-production in his native Lyttelton, with regular collaborator Ben Edwards. The finished result moves Marlon several paces from “country”—the genre that’s been affixed to him more than any in recent years, with forays into cinematic strings, reverb, rollicking guitar and at least one quiet piano ballad, on his most expansive recorded work to date.

This year Marlon will take his live show to 46 cities around the world for his largest ever headline tour including five dates across Australia in May. Tickets for these shows are selling fast and fans are encouraged to purchase tickets to avoid missing out. All dates are below.
