Jonathan Wilson announces new album “Dixie Blur” released 6th March via Bella Union + Spring European tour to follow release

Jonathan Wilson announces his new album Dixie Blur, released 6th march via Bella Union in the UK / Europe (BMG in North America) and available to preorder here.

The critically-acclaimed artist, multi-instrumentalist and producer (Father John Misty, Laura Marling, Dawes) spent most of 2017-18 on Roger Waters’ epic US+THEM tour as musical director, guitarist and vocalist, singing the David Gilmour leads. Following the tour, Wilson chose to temporarily leave his Los Angeles-based home and studio and head to Nashville to work with a revered group of musicians and co-producer Pat Sansone of Wilco, to create Dixie Blur, his most personal, accessible and fully-realised work to date.

Listen to the tracks “So Alive” and “Korean Tea” to appreciate Wilson’s sonic vision for Dixie Blur. The video for the recently released “69 Corvette” features in-studio footage of the recording, but more importantly, includes personal home movies from his upbringing that help illustrate the narrative of Dixie Blur.  The North Carolina native moved to LA 15 years ago where he became an integral part of the music community as a respected artist and producer. It was there he recorded and played most of the instruments on his celebrated albums Gentle Spirit (2011), Fanfare (2013) and Rare Birds (2018), building each project over time, piece by piece.

Wilson has announced a 10–date full band European tour in late March / early April which includes a headline performance at London’s new Lafayette venue. Tour dates, album tracklist and new Jonathan Wilson photo by Louis Rodiger below…
