Night Beats’ fourth album Myth Of A Man was released on the 18th January, 2019.
Limited red coloured vinyl on first pressing, also available on CD.
The bruises on Myth Of A Man certainly aren’t covered up. It’s a record that has a broken heart, licks its wounds, falls in love again, gets its ass kicked, goes back into the fray and takes the punches once more. In other words, it’s a record about life and living it.
Call it soul, call it rock’n’roll, call it what you like. For anyone who has had their ears open, those elements have always been part of the DNA of Night Beats, but here Blackwell has recalibrated them, slowed them down just enough and allowed them the space to breathe and exist as something new. It’s the same book, just a different chapter.
