Faces And Places is the debut album from Mark W Georgsson, produced by Rod Jones of Idlewild, and the single The Ballad Of The Nearly Man is due to be released by Last Night From Glasgow Records on 2 June.
The song is a duet with Katie McArthur and the B-side features an Icelandic version by Sigríður Thorlacius and Arnari Guðjónssyni.
The label is as exciting as the record – a crowd-funded concept with members paying £50 a year in return for the label’s output and access to members-only gigs. The first of these is the launch party, featuring acts from the label’s roster, somewhere in Glasgow on 2 June. Georgsson also plays Electric Fields at Drumlanrig Castle in August and Iceland Airwaves in Reykjavik in November.
