Brett Dennen – new album

Brett DennenNorthern California native Brett Dennen is pleased to announce details of his upcoming headline London show. Having performed at London’s Borderline earlier this year, the singer-songwriter will embark on a support slot with songstress, Paloma Faith, this month before rounding things off on 26 November at London’s St Pancras Old Church for an intimate headline date.

To coincide with the UK gigs, the pop folk singer will be releasing his new single ‘When We Were Young’ taken from the upcoming album Smoke & Mirrors out on 1 December.

Here’s the official video:

Smoke and Mirrors is a return to form for Dennen, taking him back to his roots both sonically and aesthetically yet with more confidence and maturity than ever before. He retreated to his mountain house in Northern California and began writing finding inspiration in his surroundings and the simplicity of nature.

Dennen then took the songs to Nashville to record with producer Charlie Peacock (The Civil Wars), eschewing his L.A. comfort zone to work with virtual strangers. Peacock explains, “Brett and I spent a lot of time just building out the arrangements. From the production side, he encouraged me to make every song uniquely its own while keeping it cohesive – and I think we did it. His wonderful music aside, Brett is certainly one of the most whimsical people I’ve ever produced – a true original.” The resulting 10-song set features Dennen’s strongest and most cohesive collection to date.
