willy mason releases his much anticipated third studio album 'carry on' - his first release on fiction records. coming in the wake of his critically acclaimed and gold certified debut 'where the humans eat' which included the now classic track 'oxygen', and the progressive sound of his 2007 sophomore release 'if the ocean gets rough', 'carry on' has been five years in the making. having been introduced to producer dan carey by a mutual friend, willy headed to the altogether different climes of streatham, south london to record what would become 'carry on'. dan's background was varied and brilliant, working with the likes of mia, hot chip and kylie minogue, artists not immediately akin to the sound of willy mason. however dan's use of rhythm and bass along with the prospect of using drumboxes was something that intrigued willy. the resulting work is mason's most ambitious and fully realized work to date. elements of dub and reggae infuse themselves seamlessly with guitar, low strings, and mason's inimitable gravel deep vocal to deliver songs awash with the sentiments of hope, disillusionment, love and lost connections.
