NEWS: Charlie Simpson Announces “Farmer And His Gun” EP

Following the incredible success of his top 6 debut solo album ‘Young Pilgrim’, Charlie Simpson is to release a brand new EP – ‘Farmer & His Gun’ on March 25th. The EP coincides with his UK tour and biggest solo show to date at London’s Koko on March 22nd.

The EP will contain four tracks, including a re-recorded version of Farmer & His Gun, the original home recorded demo, ‘Barricades Of Heaven’ (Jackson Browne cover) and ‘Lost’. The EP will be made available as a digital download, CD and two 7” Vinyls and will be accompanied by a video from acclaimed animation director Alice Dupre who’s previous work includes ‘Scott Pilgrim vs The World’ and ‘Nanny McPhee’.
The live arena perfectly showcases Charlie’s strength as a musician, songwriter and performer. October 2011 saw Charlie sell out a number of dates including London’s Islington Academy. March 2011 sees Charlie hit the road again to play shows in Birmingham, Liverpool, Newcastle, Edinburgh to name but a few. A number of shows have also been confirmed for Austin’s SXSW Festival. A full list of dates is below.
2011 was a stellar year for Charlie. His single ‘Cemetery’ was selected as the iTunes Single Of The Week and the lead single from the album ‘Down Down Down’ was rapturously received by Charlie’s fans, including Radio 1 Dj Fearne Cotton who selected it as her ‘Record Of The Week’.
Charlie also made numerous TV appearances including performing on ITV’s Daybreak, Channel 4‘s Hollyoaks Music Show and Channel 5’s OK TV. His music videos have gained over 2 million views on YouTube, including the video ‘Cemetery’ where Charlie was assaulted by low flying fruit.
‘Young Pilgrim’ saw Charlie join forces with acclaimed producer Danton Supple (Coldplay, Doves) to begin recording the album. The result is an accomplished 12 track record that emanates vintage warmth and whose luscious melodies and occasional imperfections lend it a vibrant character and earnest charm.
