Steve Mason has announced details of his new album entitled Monkey Minds In The Devil’s Time which will be released by Double Six on Monday March 18th 2013.
Monkey Minds In The Devil’s Time is an album saturated with politics. With a title referring to the Buddhist term for an easily distracted brain, the album features 20 songs: 9 recorded in London with producer Dan Carey and 11 short linking pieces self-produced in Mason’s Fife studio. Monkey Minds In the Devil’s Time is an album that has been shaped by the current global political climate and the lack of dissenting voices in music and popular culture in general. The righteous, undaunted anger at the heart of the album has helped to create Mason’s best record to date.
All songs on the album were written by Mason, while Dan Carey appears on bass throughout the record and acclaimed London MC Mystro provides vocals on “More Money, More Fire”.
Watch the video for album track “Fight Them Back” HERE. A protest song for a post-London riots era, “Fight Them Back” hangs on a madly catchy, fantastically confrontational chorus and is matched with an equally striking video.
