New Steve Mason album due next March

SMAson

Earlier today ex-Beta Band front-man Steve Mason announced details of his forthcoming album, Monkey Minds In The Devil’s Time.

The album will be released by Double Six on Monday 11th March next year and has a heavily politicized bent.

Monkey Minds In The Devil’s Time is Mason‘s second album under his real name and the title refers to the Buddhist term for an easily distracted brain. It’s songs are also rumoured to have been shaped by Mason‘s reactions to a number of recent global political crises and injustices.

The album features 20 songs – 9 of which were recorded in London with producer Dan Carey and 11 shorter interludes which were self-produced in Steve‘s Fife studio.

Check out the video for Fight Them Back (the first tune to be released from the forthcoming album) below (described by Double Six as ‘a protest song for a post-London riots era’):
