Actor, songwriter and all-round charmer Johnny Flynn will release new album ‘Sillion’ on March 24th.
The material grew sporadically over the last couple of years, with Johnny Flynn balancing music with a young family.
New album ‘Sillion’ emerges shortly, with guests including Cosmo Sheldrake on electronics, and a burst of electric guitar from Dave Tattersall.
‘Raising The Dead’ leads the way, and it’s an autobiographical return from Johnny Flynn. He explains:
“My Dad died when I was 18, and that was quite a galvanising experience, and there’s often an element of that in anything I’m writing; every big loss that you suffer in life, I think everything comes through the conduit of that. I had a really strong sense of my daughter having elements of my Dad when she came along, and it made me kind of laugh - that cyclical sense, of thinking of my daughter as my Dad.”
