Steve Mason has shared ‘Walking Away From Love’, the latest track to be taken from his forthcoming new album, ‘About The Light’, which is out on Double Six on Friday January 18 2019.
‘Walking Away From Love’ follows the first track to be taken from the album, the recently 6 Music B-listed ‘Stars Around My Heart’.
‘About The Light’ is his fourth solo album following ‘Boys Outside’ (2010), ‘Monkey Minds In ‘The Devil’s Time’ (2013) and ‘Meet The Humans’ (2016).

Having written most of his previous albums alone, ‘About The Light’ marks a change in approach for Steve.
“I decided with this album that I wanted to get my live band involved at every stage because I wanted to capture the energy that we produce when we play live shows, so this time the band and myself worked on a collection of songs over the course of last year,” he explains.
Picking Stephen Street to produce the album, and with a very clear plan in mind, from the off the goal was to capture the songs live and draw out their soulful elements. Recorded at studios in London and Brighton, ‘About The Light’, sees a subtle yet noticeable evolution in Steve’s sound.
