Steve Mason Prepares Politically Charged Album

'Monkey Minds In The Devil’s Time' due on March 11th
Steve Mason

Steve Mason is set to release his politically charged new album 'Monkey Minds In The Devil’s Time' on March 11th.

It's an easy statement to make, but nonetheless true: Steve Mason is one of the country's most under-rated songwriters. Having helmed The Beta Band, the Scottish artist has enjoyed a rich solo career which has produced some fine work.

Now he's back. Steve Mason will release the intriguingly titled 'Monkey Minds In The Devil’s Time' next year, with Double Six again providing the songwriter with a home. Seemingly a politically charged effort, the album contains 20 tracks. Nine songs were recorded in London with Dan Carey at the controls, while the remainder are sound pieces constructed at Mason's home studio in Fife, Scotland.

'Fight Them Back' is a protest song, focussing on the dis-enfranchised elements of London life. A video for the track has emerged online, find it below:
