Youngster Isaac Gracie has the industry twitching! Annie Mac debuted his new single ‘Last Words’ on her Radio One show on Tuesday.
Isaac Gracie is very pleased to reveal the details of his debut album for release in the Spring. The self-titled “Isaac Gracie” will be released on the 13th April through Virgin EMI. It was largely produced by Markus Dravs (Florence + the Machine, Arcade Fire) at RAK Studios in London and features eleven tracks including the recent singles Terrified and The Death of You & I.
The record is announced alongside a new single, Last Words, the original demo of which acted as the very first introduction to Isaac’s music.
Isaac: “Over the course of the two years it took to complete this record, I learnt more about myself and about music than I had in the entirety of my prior life. It was the biggest test I’ve ever undertaken and a winding journey that I won’t forget.
“To now have the record as a physical representation of a heavy and formative time in my life, that can be traced and re-remembered through listening to it, is an awesome and unique reward for the time and effort and love that was spent.“
Isaac Gracie has been finding his feet and working out who he is and discovering what he wants since the industry spotlight fell on him. The fuss was caused by a dusty-sounding, careworn home recording of Last Words that was uploaded online without expectation and any anticipation of what might follow. The voice behind it was completely new to the premise of where writing a great song might lead him. Even now he’d tell you that he’s still slowly working it all out, but this debut collection sounds as fully-realised and confident as any of recent memory.
Isaac Gracie is a new British voice, poetic in his placement of words and accomplished in their delivery. Isaac Gracie heads out on a full tour of the UK throughout April, which will be followed by a new European tour throughout May.
