Oxford-based singer-songwriter Lewis Watson has released his new single ‘Deep The Water’ taken from his upcoming second album midnight, out March 24th through Cooking Vinyl. Accompanying the single is a live video featuring Lewis’ backing band, which will give fans a taste of what to expect from this month’s UK headline tour. You can watch the video HERE.
The new single sees the Lewis once again showcase his versatile vocal range and finely tuned skills in constructing mature, cultured pop songs.
The track has already received support from BBC Radio 1, with spins from both Adele Roberts and Cel Spellman, as well as significant early radio plays from Triple A in the US, where Lewis has just completed a successful stint at SXSW and announced a full tour in May.
On Lewis’ new album midnight, he has developed his much-loved acoustic-pop sound into something altogether more ambitious. Drawing upon inspiration from a disparate range of influences including Death Cab For Cutie, Coldplay and Bon Iver, the album expands Lewis Watson’s musical world far beyond his debut.
Already praised by the likes of Q and the Sunday Times, it’s a dramatic and wide-ranging album that expands Lewis’ musical palette into new horizons.
Lewis will embark on a UK headline tour from March in support of the album. The run of dates will also include festival appearances at Live At Leeds and 2Q Festival. Full tour dates are as follows:
