The brilliant Richard Dawson announces news of his next album, plus new single and video 'Jogging'

Richard Dawson has announced the follow up to tQ's favourite album of 2017, Peasant, with new LP 2020 due for release on 11 October via Domino.

To go along with it, he's shared new single 'Jogging' and it's accompanying video, which you can take a look at above.

2020 will see the musician, who last released an album with Hen Ogledd last year, address contemporary issues and stories.

"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."

2020 is released on 11 October, and is available to pre-order on CD, vinyl, and limited edition white vinyl with a 12-page comic by artist David Squires here.
