New Danny & The Champions Of The World Album Announced + UK Tour Dates

Danny & The Champions Of The World will release Brilliant Light, their sixth studio album, on 23rd June. Brilliant Light, the follow-up to 2015’s award winning album ‘What Kind Of Love’, features 18 songs over two CDs/LPs. A limited edition triple CD/LP version is available to pre-order via Pledge Music or from your local independent record shop, with a bonus disc, Photogene, consisting of  eleven instrumentals.

Swift Street is the first song to be shared from Brilliant Light. The song is deeply personal to Danny George Wilson who co-wrote it with Polly Paulusma and Carra Bacon.

Swift Street is the house where my mother grew up’’, Danny tells us.“The song is about 3 different photographs – one of me and my brothers playing in a billy cart in the driveway, the second is of my grandfather aged 14 standing with his mother outside his childhood home in Aberdeen – he left for Australia after the Second World War. The third is of my folks in the garden of the house in Swift Street before they left to live in London. Each photograph takes a verse. I was nervous about my mum hearing it, but she loves it.’’
