Marlon Williams

New Zealand's Marlon Williams has quite simply got one of the most extraordinary, effortlessly distinctive voices of his generation—a fact well known to fans of his first, self-titled solo album, and his captivating live shows. An otherworldly instrument with an affecting vibrato, it's a voice that's earned repeated comparisons to the great Roy Orbison, and even briefly had Williams, in his youth, consider a career in classical singing, before realizing his temperament was more Stratocaster than Stradivarius.

But it's the art of songwriting that has bedeviled the artist, and into which he has grown exponentially on his second album, Make Way For Love, out in February of 2018. It's Marlon Williams like you've never heard him before—exploring new musical terrain and revealing himself in an unprecedented way, in the wake of a fractured relationship.

Like any good New Zealander, Williams doesn't boast or sugarcoat: songwriting is still not his favorite endeavor. "I mean, I find it ecstatic to finish a song," he explains. "To have done one doesn't feel like an accomplishment as much as a relief and maybe a curiosity, you know? To have come through to the other side and have something. But it certainly always feels messy." In the past, his default approach to was storytelling. On 2015's Marlon Williams, the musician took a cue from traditional folk and bluegrass, and wove dark, character-driven tales: "Hello Miss Lonesome", "Strange Things" and "Dark Child". But when it came to sharing his own life in song, he was more reticent. "I've always had this sort of hang up about putting too much of myself into my music," he admits. "All of the projects I've ever been in, there was a conscientious effort to try and have this barrier between myself and the emotional crux of the music. I've loved writing characters into my songs, or at least pretending that it wasn't me that it was about."

Sensing that people wanted more Marlon from Marlon, on album number two he was determined to deliver. And while he's still a firm believer in the art of cover songs—his live shows regularly feature covers of songs by artists ranging from Townes Van Zandt to Yoko Ono—Williams wanted the new record to be all original material. By the autumn of last year, with a recording deadline looming the following February, it was crunch time for the musician, a reflexive procrastinator. "I hadn't written for two years!" he recalls. What was needed was a lyrical spark. A triggering event, perhaps. As it turns out, life delivered just that.

In early December, Williams and his longtime girlfriend, musician Aldous (Hannah) Harding, broke up—the end of a relationship that brought together two of Down Under's most acclaimed talents of recent years, who'd managed to navigate the challenges of having equally ascendant—though separate—careers, until they couldn't. While personally wrenching, the split seemed to open the floodgates for Williams as a writer. "Then I wrote about fifteen songs in a month," he recalls. The biggest challenge? Condensing often complex, conflicted emotions and doing them justice. "Just narrowing the possibilities into a three-minute song makes me feel dirty", he explains. Also, not making a breakup record that was too much of a downer. "I had a lot of good friends saying, ‘Don't worry about sounding too sad,'" he says. "They were saying, ‘Just go with it.'"

Sure enough, while Make Way For Love draws on Williams' own story, in remarkably universal terms it captures the vagaries of relationships that we've all been through: the bliss (opener "Come To Me"); ache ("Love Is a Terrible Thing", a ballad that likens post-breakup emptiness to "a snowman melting in the spring"); nagging questions ("Can I Call You", which wonders aloud what his ex is drinking, who she's with, and if she's happy); and bitterness ("The Fire Of Love", whose lyrics Williams says he "agonized over" more than any).

On "Party Boy", over an urgent, moody gallop that recalls his last album's "Hello Miss Lonesome", Williams conjures the image (a composite of people he knows, he says) of that guy who has just the stuff to keep the party going ‘til dawn, and who you might catch "sniffin' around" your "pride and joy." There's "Beautiful Dress", on which Williams seems to channel balladeer Elvis on the verse and the Future Feminist herself, Ahnoni, on a lilting, tremulous hook; in contrast, the brooding "I Didn't Make A Plan", casts Williams as the cad. In a deep-voiced delivery akin to Leonard Cohen—unusual for the singer—he callously, matter-of-factly tosses a lover aside, just cuz. It's brutal, but so, sometimes, is life. And there's "Nobody Gets What They Want Anymore", a duet with Harding, recorded after the two broke up, with Williams directing Harding's recording via a late-night long distance phone call. "It made the most sense to have her singing on it," he says. "But it wasn't that easy to make that happen."

Williams flipped the script recording-wise as well. After three weeks of pre-production five doors from his mother's house in his native Lyttelton, New Zealand (for several years, Williams has made his home in Melbourne) with regular collaborator Ben Edwards—"really the only person I'd ever worked with before"—Williams and his backing band, The Yarra Benders, then decamped 7000 miles away, to Northern California's Panoramic Studios, to record with producer Noah Georgeson, who's helmed baroque pop and alt-folk gems by Joanna Newsom, Adam Green, Little Joy and Devendra Banhart. "I was a really big fan of those Cate Le Bon records he did [Mug Museum, Crab Day]," Williams says. "I was obsessed with those albums."

If the idea in going so far from home to make the new record was to shake things up and get out of his Kiwi comfort zone, Williams succeeded—to the point where at first he wondered if he'd gone too far. "The first couple of days I nearly had a breakdown," he recalls. "Just cause I got there and I'm working with Noah on this really personal record having only met twice before over a coffee. I was like, ‘I wish we'd talked about it a little bit more' and figured out exactly how the dynamic was going to work." Williams is a worrier. But he needn't worry. He and Georgeson settled into a zone over twelve days of recording, helped by the bonding experience of what Williams describes as the "greatest prank of all time", with Georgeson convincing both Williams and multi-instrumentalist Dave Khan that there was a ghost in the studio, using an effect on his keyboard. Georgeson made his mark on the record as well, adding a fresh perspective on songs that had been well developed in pre-production, and alongside the incredible performances by The Yarra Benders, they have, in Make Way For Love, a triumph on their hands.

The record also moves Williams several paces away from "country"—the genre that's been affixed to him more than any in recent years, but one that's always been a bit too reductive to be wholly accurate. Going back to his high school years band The Unfaithful Ways and his subsequent Sad But True series of collaborations with fellow New Zealander Delaney Davidson, and on through his first solo LP, Williams has proven himself plenty adept with country sounds, but also bluegrass, folk, blues and even retro pop. "I think I've always been sort of mischievously passive when people use that term ["country"] to describe me," he says. "I like letting labels be and sort of just play that out." Make Way For Love, with forays into cinematic strings, reverb, rollicking guitar and at least one quiet piano ballad, is more expansive—while still retaining, on "Party Boy" and "I Know A Jeweller", some cowboy vibes, the record will likely invoke as many Scott Walker and Ennio Morricone mentions as it does country ones. "I think just having the time," he explains, "and having just finished a cycle of playing these quite heavily country-leaning songs for the last three or four years, and playing them a lot, has definitely pushed me into exploring other things.

As ever, you can expect some memorable videos with the new album. As reluctant as he's been to put his lyrical heart on his sleeve in the past, Williams has never been shy about visuals and the more performative aspects of his art. Unlike many of his folk and alt-country brethren, Williams embraces the chameleonic possibilities offered by music videos. Since The Unfaithful Ways, he's appeared in nearly all of his videos, assuming a variety of characters—multiple ones, in the Roshomon-like "Dark Child." He's gotten naked and visceral, in "Hello Miss Lonesome" and loose and playful in this past summer's one-off, "Vampire Again", which saw Williams as a goofy Nosferatu—his most lighthearted persona to date. "For me, I think that ambiguity is such an important part of my process and my art," he explains, "that [videos are] just another way to further muddy the waters, you know? And I look for that, I think." He'll further muddy the waters with a new video for opening single "Nobody Gets What They Want Anymore", directed by Ben Kitnick, in which Williams plays an overwhelmed waiter at a restaurant full of demanding hipsters.

On the live front, Williams—who's been a road dog in recent years, touring with Justin Townes Earle, Band Of Horses, City & Colour and Iron & Wine's Sam Beam —had a comparatively low-key 2017, though appearances at Newport Folk Festival, Pickathon and Into The Great Wide Open kept him in game shape, not to mention February support dates in New Zealand for none other than Bruce Springsteen. In 2018, Williams will head out on a 50 plus date world tour, taking the music of Make Way For Love far and wide. They're songs that need to be heard by anyone who's ever loved, and lost, and loved again.

If "breakup record" is a trope—and certainly it is—then Marlon Williams has done it proud. Like the best of the lot—Beck's Sea Change, Bon Iver's For Emma, Forever Ago, Phosphorescent's harrowing "Song For Zula" and Joni Mitchell's masterpiece Blue (written perhaps not coincidentally, following her own breakup with another gifted musician) Make Way For Love doesn't shy away from heartbreak, but rather stares it in the face, and mines beauty from it. Delicate and bold, tender and searing, it's a mightily personal new step for the Kiwi, and ultimately, on the record's final, title track, Williams dusts himself off and is ready to move forward. Set to a doo-wop backdrop and in language he calls "deliberately archaic", that superb voice sings: "Here is the will/ Here is the way/ The way into love/ Oh, let the wonder of the ages/ Be revealed as love."

Watch Marlon Williams’ New “Come To Me” Video

New Zealand’s Marlon Williams will release Make Way For Love on February 16th – and we couldn’t be more excited for you to hear it. Throughout 11 original songs, Williams reveals himself in an unprecedented way in the wake of a fractured relationship. But while this sophomore album draws on his own story, it also captures the emotional ups-and-downs of relationships we’ve all been through. New single, “Come To Me,” presents the blissful side of that spectrum. The song’s accompanying video, directed by Martin Sagadin, features Williams and his band – David Khan (guitar), Ben Woolley (bass), and Angus Agars (drums) – enjoying a day off at the Lyttelton Skate Park in their hometown. You can watch the video below.

Watch the New Video for Marlon Williams’ “What’s Chasing You”

New Zealand’s Marlon Williams will release his sophomore album, Make Way For Love, on February 16th. After presenting the “ethereal rocker” (American Songwriter) “Nobody Gets What They Want Anymore,” a duet with Aldous Harding, Williams now shares “What’s Chasing You” and its accompanying video directed by Martin Sagadin.

Williams explains, “It’s an earnest question. It’s the only thing I’ve ever really wanted to know of another human being. Like all good questions, it’s childishly simple. We all want to live inside the fears of the ones we love, if not to dispel them then at the very least to understand, empathize and let’s be honest, compare hands. I’m not convinced truly understanding another’s woes would really bring anyone happiness, but I am a nosey boy. What’s chasing you?”

This year Williams will take his live show to 46 cities around the world for his largest ever headline tour. All dates are below.

Marlon Williams Announces Sophomore LP, ‘Make Way For Love,’ Out February 16th

Pre-order Make Way For Love
https://marlon-williams.lnk.to/makewayforlove

Let’s start off your Wednesday with some good news, why don’t we? We’re so over the moon to announce New Zealand’s Marlon Williams will release his sophomore album, Make Way For Love, on February 16th. Known for his effortlessly distinctive voice, Make Way For Love marks Marlon’s exponential growth as a songwriter. Throughout 11 original songs, he explores new musical terrain and reveals himself in an unprecedented way in the wake of a fractured relationship.

In conjunction with today’s album announcement, Marlon announces an international tour and shares the album’s penultimate track, “Nobody Gets What They Want Anymore,” a duet with Aldous Harding, recorded via a late-night long distance phone call, plus an accompanying video filmed in New York City.

While Make Way For Love draws on Marlon’s own story, it captures the vagaries of relationships we’ve all been through: the bliss, ache, uncertainty, and bitterness. Like the best breakup records, Make Way For Love doesn’t shy away from heartbreak, but rather stares it in the face, and mines beauty from it. Delicate and bold, tender and searing, it’s a mightily personal new step.

Make Way For Love was recorded with producer Noah Georgeson and his backing band, The Yarra Benders, in North California’s Panoramic Studios after several weeks of pre-production in his native Lyttelton, New Zealand with regular collaborator Ben Edwards. The finished result is an expansive record that moves Marlon several paces from “country” — the genre that’s been affixed to him more than any in recent years — with forays into cinematic strings, reverb, rollicking guitar, and at least one quiet piano ballad.

Currently in the midst of a sold out global preview tour to support his stand alone single, “Vampire Again,” Marlon will take his live show to dozens of cities around the world next year for his largest ever headline tour. All dates are below. Tickets for North America will be on sale Nov. 10th at http://www.marlonwilliams.co.nz/.
