About this Album
After launching his solo career with the critically acclaimed Familial last year, Philip Selway returns with the Running Blind EP, which Nonesuch Records released digitally in the US and Canada on August 30, following the European release via Bella Union.
When Selway wrote the songs that formed the track listing for Familial, he kept back a handful that he felt worked best as a separate piece of work; these now comprise Running Blind. The songs evolved during Selway’s live shows supporting Familial, and he subsequently returned to the studio to record them with his band: Adem, Alex Thomas, Caroline Weeks, and Kath Mann. The Running Blind digital EP includes those four songs plus a live session video of the title track.
This will be available from Nonesuch in the US and Canada only.
