Richard Dawson has revealed details of a new album, 2020.

The follow-up to 2017's Peasant, and an LP that Dawson released with Hen Ogledd last year, the new album sees Dawson address various contemporary issues and stories. You can watch a video for lead track 'Jogging' above.

"On 2020, Dawson introduces us to grand themes through small lives," a press release reads. "His are portraits of human beings struggling with recognisable (and dare we say it, relatable) concerns, conflicts and desires, each reminding us that tragedy and gallows humour are not mutually exclusive, and that the magical can sit next to the mundane."

Domino will release 2020 on October 11, 2019.
