Stop what you're doing because Monday just got pretty exciting... King Charles has this morning announced details of his second album, entitled Gamble For A Rose. It's going to be released through Buffalo Gang, via Kobalt, on 22nd January 2016, just under four years since his first record, LoveBlood, was released.
With a great track listing featuring a number of old and updated tracks, including a new version of Lady Of The River that I'm particularly excited to hear a studio recording of, the album looks set to be a stunning collection of music and worth the long wait since Charles' first record. You can listen to the first track from the album, Loose Change for the Boatman, above, and download it for FREE here. Having heard the track live a few times this year I'm personally loving the studio version, and particularly loving the prominence of the strings in the track, which, along with the rest of the record, was produced by Mumford & Son's Marcus Mumford. As a first single from the record, the track is really strong and gives a good indication of what to expect from the rest of the record!
