Singer-songwriter Willy Mason is excited to announce the release of his brand new Don't Stop Now EP on January 14, 2013 in the US. The EP will be released digitally and as a limited-run of five hundred 10'' vinyl via Communion Records. Dan Carey (M.I.A., Hot Chip, Bat For Lashes) produced the first three tracks of the EP, and the fourth and final title track "Don't Stop Now" is a collaboration that was written and produced with a friend from Willy's home state of Massachusetts. The EP fuses Mason's unique vocals with lyrics that draw on sentiments of hope, disillusionment, love and lost connections. It is anchored by new single "I Got Gold," which was Zane Lowe's "Hottest Record In The World" only a few weeks ago.
Willy Mason's much anticipated third studio album Carry On was released in the UK on December 3, 2012. Coming in the wake of his critically acclaimed and gold certified debut Where The Humans Eat, which included the classic 'Oxygen', and the progressive sound of his 2007 sophomore release If The Ocean Gets Rough, Carry On has been five years in the making. After decamping to his childhood home in Martha's Vineyard, then the altogether different climes of Streatham, South London to record, Willy describes it as "the third and final chapter to a particular narrative that started with Where the Humans Eat," - his most ambitious and fully realized work to date.
