Last Summer

Album: Mutineers (2014)

Songfacts®:

  • David Gray joined forces with producer/songwriter/remixer Andy Barlow for his Mutineers album. This was the first song they completed together. Gray recalled to Artist Direct: "That really came out very beautifully from a small inconsequential song I had that I didn't even think of being on the main record. We had this track, and it really expanded. I wanted to see where Andy was taking it. It was somewhere I hadn't been before. That was very exciting."

    Andy Barlow has also worked with Elbow and Damien Rice but is best known as one one half of the 1990s British Electronica band Lamb.
