And it starts in the UK tomorrow. Will Sheff has been working on solo material alongside such collaborators as guitarist Will Graefe and bassist Benjamin Lazar Davis as well as new collaborators Christian Lee Hutson, Dawes drummer Griffin Goldsmith, and Death Cab For Cutie pianist Zac Rae, as well as featuring guest vocals from Cassandra Jenkins and Eric D. Johnson (did we not say he was ever prolific?) with the results forming his solo album ‘Nothing Special‘ which is out now. It sees Sheff taking a meditative look at the wide-canvas world and paying witness to the things that may come to be. It has a certain gorgeous feel to it.

The tour of the UK and Europe will take in the following dates:

Mar 2 — Liverpool, UK @ Futureyard
Mar 3 — Manchester, UK @ Deaf Institute
Mar 4 — Glasgow, UK @ Stereo
Mar 5 — Leeds, UK @ Brudenell Social Club
Mar 7 — Bristol, UK @ Rough Trade
Mar 8 — London, UK @ Omeara
Mar 10 — Brussels, BE @ Botanique Rotonde
Mar 11 — Paris, FR @ La Boule Noire
Mar 12 — Amsterdam, NL @ Paradiso
Mar 14 — Hamburg, DE @ Molotow
Mar 15 — Berlin, DE @ Urban Spree
Mar 16 — Copenhagen, DK @ Loppen

And here’s a quick taster of the album.

Sure, I could climb high in a tree, or go to Skye on my holiday. I could be happy. All I really want is the excitement of first hearing The Byrds, the amazement of decades of Dylan's music, or the thrill of seeing a band like The Long Ryders live. That's not much to ask, is it?
