‘No Love Songs For Laura’ is an anthemic 13-track set that takes Kyle Falconer in bold new musical directions that has him sounding like he’s never sounded before. It’s a record that works the heart as much as the head, the dancing feet as much as the punching fist of joy. It’s an album of emotional highs and occasional confessional lows which reflects upon both his home life, with his wife Laura and two children, and the journey he has undertaken to arrive where he is today.
Falconer has ignited anticipation for the record by sharing two lead singles ‘Wait Around’ and ‘Stress Ball’. Eclectic support for the two tracks has included a playlist at Radio 2, a session for Chris Evans’ Breakfast Show on Virgin Radio, praise from Clash and NME, plus adds to Spotify playlists including Peach and Transistor.
He will follow the release of ‘No Love Songs For Laura’ by playing a special run of shows in association with Assai Records. Each night will see Kyle perform an hour-long set, and will be complemented by a Q&A session with his new manager, the legendary Creation Records founder Alan McGee.

13th – Dundee, The Church
