Marlon Williams is certainly no one-trick pony when it comes to music. Compare his eponymous 2016 solo debut with the latest two singles from his forthcoming Make Way for Love (out 16 February on Dead Oceans) and you begin to get a feel for that creative elasticity. Check out his latest video for What’s Chasing You that calls to mind the crooning sound of the late Roy Orbison…nice moves.
On Make Way For Love, Marlon explores new musical terrain and reveals himself in an unprecedented way in the wake of a fractured relationship. The album captures the vagaries of relationships we’ve all been through: the bliss, ache, uncertainty, and bitterness. Like the best break-up records, Make Way For Love doesn’t shy away from heartbreak but rather stares it in the face.
This is one we’re really looking forward to and you catch him on tour next month. See dates below:
