Jon Boden “All the Stars are Coming Out Tonight” – Listen

12-time BBC Folk Award winner (greedy) and ex-Bellowhead frontman, Jon Boden has just shared his new single All The Stars Are Coming Out Tonight in advance of his new solo album ‘Afterglow’ which arrives on October 6th via Hudson Records. Speaking about the new track, Boden says: “Without easy access to electric light and with a shortage of oil, our lives will again become bounded by the astronomical cycle of the universe, and our relationship with the stars will become closer, uninhibited by artificial light pollution. I wanted the stars to have a big presence in the album, particularly Orion who, as a ‘hunter’, is someone who our hero identifies with as he searches the city for a girl he knew once but hasn’t seen for many years.” And his car keys.
