A New Kind of Loneliness

A New Kind of Loneliness

About this release

Michael will be undertaking a major UK/ European tour during 2007 with full PR support. All dates will be advertised in MOJO and Uncut alongside album release. Album reviews: MWK has entered the rarefied field of classic singer songwriters. USA ENTERTAINMENT NEWS Listen to A New Kind of Loneliness and you'll hear a musician who's risen above pigeonholing genres to produce an album categorised only by its sheer class. NETRHYTHMS 5/5 ***** THE DAILY EXPRESS 4/5 **** Another stunning record from Britains leading rocking singer/songwriter MAVERICK 5/5 ***** A New Kind of Loneliness finds King in reflective mode and is full of ultra-fine moments. UNCUT 3/5 *** THE SUN 4/5 **** 'It Will End In Tears' could be one of the songs of the year so far, and the album that spawned it no less dignified or impressive. SCOTLAND ON SUNDAY 4/5 ***** A set of diversity and pervsersity with MWK sounding like a warm toned Nick Cave. A New Kind of Loneliness is an old kind of album, being a dozen real songs (not a single, a flop and ten fillers), and it is an album you should hear. UNPEELED.CO.UK 'A New Kind Of Loneliness' is quite probably King's very best album to date and one which (again) re-inforces his credentials as one of the UK's very best singer/ songwriters. WHISPERINANDHOLLERIN 10 / 10 ************** A New Kind of Loneliness may prove to be King's breakthrough in America. Amply stocked with instantly embracing originals and it garners additional credibility in cameos from Chris Hillman and fellow songsmith Ron Sexsmith. USA ENTERTAINMENT NEWS & VIEWS ****4/5 A superb album, and yet another album of the year contender from MWK. WWW.AMERICANA-UK ********8/10 'It Will End In Tears' , which - with its' stung and bitten-off guitar and tormented lyrics ("And there was nothing I wouldn't do/ I was totally consumed by you/ it will end in tears") may well come to be viewed as Michael's very own 'I Want You' in years to come. WHISPERINANDHOLLERIN 10 / 10 ************** Nowhere is his skill as a storyteller more evident than in the stunning "Let The Waves Break Around Your Face". It would be unfair to give away much about it but if he never wrote another tune, this incredible fable of loss would still make him a songwriter with a capital ROCK N REEL 4/5 **** Given King was playing Alt Country in the UK before anyone knew what it was, it makes sense he'd be sharp enough to leave a sinking ship. With ANKOL he delivers classic orch/pop, singer songwriter and soul inspired songs of the highest order. NOW TORONTO ****4/5 Britain cannot boast many truely distinctive Americana artists but King's songwriting prowess instantly makes his origins irrevelant. This album is a must for fans of honest, earthy music EXCLAIM!/CANADA A truely impressive collection of songs about finding hope and courage in the face of adversity, and as such they avoid wallowing in gloom. COUNTRY MUSIC PEOPLE 'A New Kind Of Loneliness' is perhaps the most consistently impressive addition to an already terrific catalogue that many of the supposed 'Americana' contenders would secretly give their right arms for. If you continue to deny him, you really are a fool to yourself. WHISPERINANDHOLLERIN 10 / 10 ************** Track Listing HERE’S THE PLAN THE LAST HURRAH SATURDAY’S CHILD MY HEART STOPPED TODAY THIS MAN CAN BREAK SO EASILY LOST ONLY SEVEN DAYS ROSENKRANTZ & KRISTIANSGATE LET THE WAVES BREAK ALONE AGAIN NATURALLY IT WILL END IN TEARS
