Following on from the his acclaimed The Marvel Age, Franc Cinelli returns with a long-awaited new album in September. Night Songs was written throughout the last year and recorded once again in his SongCircle Studio in West London and is probably his most soulful collection of material yet.

Having begun 2018 in New York City, creating a series of straight-to-vinyl 7” singles through Leesta Vall Recordings in Brooklyn, Cinelli returned to London to commence work on a new set of songs, some of which would eventually fall together in the completion of Night Songs. This new collection joins together a healthy dose of spiritual cleansing and demon conquering with the help of varied influences crossing both Eastern and Western folk music, from Blaze Foley and John Martyn to Dion DiMucci and Bobby Womack to N. Ravikiran and Ravi Shankar.

Preceded by the single ‘Stay Strange’ (Watch here), Night Songs is released on 20 September and is available to pre-order here.
