LISTEN // Bill Fay’s ‘Who Is The Sender?’ Streaming on NPR and MOJO

“…built around Fay’s simple, melancholy piano chords and fragile, involving vocals, subtly fleshed out by the same team that made its warmly received predecessor”, adding that “its disarming hymnal beauty and old world sincerity… leap out and penetrate to the heart.”

ALBUM ANNOUNCE // Bill Fay ‘Who Is the Sender?’ Out 4/28, Watch “War Machine” Lyric Video



Ladies and Gentleman, Bill Fay is back. His new album Who Is the Sender? is the much anticipated but hardly-dared-hoped-for followup to 2012’s revered Life is People, which was Bill’s first solo studio album in 41 years. His new record Who is the Sender? is out April 27th (Europe) / 28th (North America).

Listen to the second album track “War Machine” now by watching the lyric video above (directed by Phil Poole) or here on YouTube / Dailymotion including scenes from the new album’s recording sessions in Ray DaviesKonk Studios in North London. The song is also streaming on our Soundcloud here.

About the album title –
Ask Bill Fay about his relationship with his instrument and he says something revealing, not “Ever since I learnt to play the piano”, but “Ever since the piano taught me…” What the piano taught him was how to connect to one of the great joys of his life. “Music gives,” he says. And he is a grateful receiver. But, it makes him wonder, “Who is the sender?”

You can pre-order the new album via SC Distribution / Dead Oceans, iTunes, Amazon, and your local record store.
