Matt Owens' (Noah & The Whale) solo debut album Whiskey & Orchids, to be released Jan 11th 2019, features gorgeous orchid-based sleeve artwork, which we can now reveal, along with the album credits and further tour dates.
Whiskey & Orchids will include brand new single Lay Down Honey, with special guest Thea Gilmore, which was "written while driving home late at night back from a show... it's about how hope and the refusal to fold can sometimes pull you through."
And World Won't Wait, about "the need to just go and do what you need to do."
Matt has added November/December tour dates in Bristol, Edinburgh and Liverpool.
