Alexander Shields has been making music for some time now.
A spectral presence on London's music scene, the songwriter has largely chosen to release material under his A Grave With No Name moniker.
Suddenly, though, the artist vanished from the capital. Re-appearing in Nashville, Shields began working alongside Lambchop's Mark Nevers at his Beech House studio.
'Feathers Wet, Under The Moon' is the result. A remarkable transition, the material retains the intimacy of the songwriter's earlier work but the aesthetic palette has been broadened in vivid colour.
Out on May 4th via Portland's Lefse Records imprint, you can stream it up front through Clash.
