Mutineers

Album: Mutineers (2014)

Songfacts®:

  • This is the title track of David Gray's Mutineers album. His collaborator and producer on the record was Andy Barlow, who is best known as one one half of Lamb, the British Electronica band of the '90s.

    "His brief was – don't let me make the same record I've made before, take me out of my comfort zone," said Gray. "And he's a very gentle kind of guy, but courageous. He really took me on creatively in a way that no one else has ever done. So I thought, yeah, this is going to work, but it was a tortured process because I found it so hard to take at times that he would tear up bits of my work in front of my eyes!"
