The initial reception to Rag’n’Bone Man’s return has been a resounding triumph, being selected as Greg James’ and Arielle Free’s ‘Record of the Week’ on BBC Radio 1 as well as Jo Whileys on BBC Radio 2. The single has been added straight to the A list at Radio 2, to the Radio 1 B list, not to mention being added straight to the A-list at Absolute, Absolute 20s, Virgin and Radio X as well.
His 2017 landmark debut ‘Human’ was a phenomenal success; a 4x platinum album which shot to #1 week of release in the UK, became the fastest-selling album by a male artist for the entire decade and earned him BRIT and Ivor Novello Awards.
If that’s a hard act to follow, Rag’n’Bone Man tore up the rulebook and went to Nashville to write and record what would become ‘Life By Misadventure’, returning to the UK just before the pandemic first erupted. While a dose of heavy blues and soul lives within some of these new tunes, the majority of this new album finds Rag’n’Bone Man taking a huge step forward as an artist, a songwriter, and a singer capable of showcasing tremendous warmth and real emotion with every breath.
The bulk of the album was produced and recorded by Grammy Award-winning producer and multi-instrumentalist Mike Elizondo (Eminem, 50 Cent, Fiona Apple, Alanis Morissette) at his studio just outside Nashville.
‘Life By Misadventure’ is the perfect tonic for these times. An album of depth and soul, about growing up and moving forward. Enjoy the trip.
