It’s been an amazing – and busy! – year for Meilyr Jones.
Following rave reviews for his solo debut album 2013, released in March via Moshi Moshi, he’s toured the land rapidly building a devoted fanbase and stealing hearts at festivals and headline shows.
Now, in celebration of his most excellent year, Meilyr returns with a new recording of Return To Life, one of the many stand-out tracks from his album.
This new version is a recording made with the band with whom he’s toured throughout the summer, serving as an alternate version to the more orchestrated original that features on the album.
Meilyr is soon to take to the road again, playing a clutch of regional shows in December, then again in 2017, for a five-date tour in March.
‘There are traces of Welsh peers Cate Le Bon and Euros Childs, but Jones has a broader palette: 30-piece orchestra, accordion, choir, field recordings et al… This is Meilyr’s time’ – MOJO
‘What a lovely record this is… 2013 fits snugly into the line of cosmic Welsh music alongside the work of Gruff Rhys and Euros Childs’ – The Guardian
