PREMIERE: Michael Baker previews his new album with wistful new single 'Big Moon'

Having spent the last few months working on his pivotal new record 'Salt', Brighton-based singer and songwriter Michael Baker is almost ready to unveil his latest work and has now shared an exclusive cut from it to wet our appetites.

The new single 'Big Moon' follows on from the previously shared offerings 'Claire', 'One God Damn', 'Baby Books', 'Past The Evening' and 'They Look Just Like They Know' in previewing his sophomore LP, which drops tomorrow (6th March).

This new release perfectly encapsulates the warm and heartfelt approach he has taken to his new collection. Presenting himself in a more tender light, he swoons and soars with little more than an acoustic guitar to create a fresh and vibrant composition with an unparalleled majesty.

Speaking about his new album, he added, “My first album was your classic, for want of a better word, heartbreak record. Coming past that period of my life, I made this album the one where I was able to talk about mental health. I was turning 30 in the music industry, that was hard. You question a lot of things at that age until you start realising that it’s not all that serious. Ultimately, it was the happiest two years of my life while making this record. I have a wonderful girlfriend, wonderful friends, but still the same mental health problems that I’d been able to blame on other things before. It shocked me that I was still having these ups and downs.”

Michael Baker will be performing an album launch party at London's Finsbury Pub on the 30th March, and you can listen to the new track 'Big Moon' in the player below.
