Premiere: Johnny Flynn - Been Listening

Recorded live in Washington DC...
Johnny Flynn

Johnny Flynn is a man of many talents.

A noted actor, the English artist is set to appear in forthcoming cinematic ventures 'Song One' and 'Clouds Of Sils Maria'.

Alongside this, Johnny Flynn is also set to expand his most recent album 'Country Mile'. The deluxe re-issue is set to feature the original album alongside the videos for singles 'Country Mile' and 'Bottom of the Sea Blues', plus an entirely new live album.

Caught in action whilst performing in Washington DC, the recordings feature Johnny Flynn playing in an entirely solo fashion. Also available as a standalone digital release, 'Live In Washington DC' is a neat object for fans and a suitable entry point for those new to Flynn's music.

Out this week, Johnny Flynn will toast the re-issue of 'Country Mile' with a no doubt epic show at London's KOKO venue tomorrow (April 9th). Before this, Clash is able to bring you something very special...

'Been Listening' is the title track from Flynn's second album, a warm, supple, folk-infused track. Given a stark rendering, the English artist accompanies himself with only the barest of electric guitar lines.

Stripped from 'Live At Washington DC', listen to the new version of 'Been Listening' below.

Johnny Flynn is set to play the following shows:

April
9 London Koko
10 York Fibbers
11 Newcastle Cluny
12 Liverpool Leaf
13 Cardiff Glee Club
