Check out the lead cut from his new album below

Garden of Ashes is the new album from Duke Garwood and above, we are premiering lead single 'Coldblooded The Return'.

Duke Garwood has released five previous blues previous albums, with his most recent in 2015 being Heavy Love, featuring backing vocals from Savages’ Jehnny Beth. In an interview with tQ, Garwood talks about recording this album in the desert, with this reflecting back through the music, in “the tranquility. The idea of nothingness - no buildings, no claustrophobia, no strange energy, it's just like wind. You almost feel like you could expand in yourself.” Now on Garden of Ashes, Garwood says that “This record is fantasy music… Beautiful apocalypse love music, it doesn't hide from reality, but it could hide the listener from it all for a while.”

The album is released via Heavenly Recordings on February 3 and can be pre-ordered here. Duke Garwood will embark on a full UK tour next year in support of the album and you can get tickets here.
