Great news to report the return of Dan Michaelson and The Coastguards who will release their new album ‘Distance’ through The State51 Conspiracy on 18th August, with ‘Burning Hearts’ being the first single out on the 4th August.

An impressively quick follow up to last year's ‘Blindspot’, Dan Michaelson returns to a full-band sound on what he describes as a ‘misleadingly upbeat’ first single from the LP. A romantic tale of two lovers dancing their way towards the end of the world.

Produced and mixed by Ash Workman, the album was written in Montauk, Long Island NY and recorded in sunny Hackney in London. Joining Dan in the studio were Magic Number Romeo Stodart (bass), Henry Spenner (drums), Laurie Earle (guitar and piano), Horse (guitar and pedal steel), Gabriel Stebbing (cello) and Johnny Flynn (violin).

So that is something to look forward too next month!
