Rag‘n’Bone Man announces his stunning new track ‘Fall In Love Again’ – the latest offering from his highly anticipated new album ‘Life By Misadventure’ – out May 7th on Columbia. Listen here.
Written by Rag‘n’Bone Man, and his album collaborator Ben Jackson-Cook, the track was recorded at Phantom Studios, Tennessee, and that calm, gentle southern swagger underpins the song throughout. Over sparse keys and soft pattering rhythms that continue to unfold, Rag‘n’Bone Man is the most vulnerable he’s ever sounded. “I’ll avoid the conversation/ Say that I need my space, not ‘cause I want to,” he sings. “I will make some poor excuse/ Every time that I get close to you.”
Of the track, Rag‘n’Bone Man says; “Fall in Love Again’ is a song Ben Jackson-Cook and I wrote on a boozy afternoon in Leiper’s Fork, Tennessee. He did the melody and I did the lyrics. The song is about sabotage: sabotaging your own relationship for fear of commitment.”
His current single, the sublime ‘All You Ever Wanted’, has made its mark with Radio 1 & Radio 2 playlist spots, racing to #1 in both the Airplay and iTunes Chart. Rag‘n’Bone Man recently turned in all -star performances on Comic Relief, Later…with Jools Holland and Ant & Dec’s Saturday Night Takeaway and will perform three special sold out shows at London’s Jazz Cafe on June 27th, 28th & 29th.
His 2017 landmark debut ‘Human’ was a phenomenal success; a 4x platinum album which shot to #1 week of release in the UK, became the fastest-selling album by a male artist for the entire decade and earned him BRIT and Ivor Novello Awards.
If that’s a hard act to follow, Rag‘n’Bone Man tore up the rule book and went to Nashville to write and record what would become ‘Life By Misadventure’, returning to the UK as the first lockdown set in. While a dose of heavy blues and soul lives within some of these new tunes, the majority of this new album finds Rag‘n’Bone Man taking a huge step forward as an artist, a songwriter, and a singer capable of showcasing tremendous warmth and real emotion with every breath.
“Life By Misadventure’ is the perfect tonic for these times and an incredible collection of emotional songs to touch us when we need it most. It’s an album of depth and soul, about growing up and moving forward. Enjoy the trip.
