Seeds of a Dandelion
Seeds Of A Dandelion is the new album by one of the UKs best kept secrets - Jono McCleery - a man blessed with a truly magical, heart- melting soul voice and skills on the guitar to match. His fourth studio album will be released via Ninja Tunes Counter Records imprint on 26th January 2018 - a decade on from his illustrious debut Darkest Light.
Seeds Of A Dandelion finds Jono stepping into new territory, piecing together a suite of cover versions of songs that date from 1941 to 2013 encompassing works by Billie Holiday, Scott Walker, both Buckleys (Tim and Jeff), Rufus Wainwright, Atoms For Peace (originators of recent single Ingenue) and Beyonce (who co-wrote new single Halo). He has, historically, demonstrated amazing aptitude in translating the songs of inspirational predecessors - take, for example, his stunning versions of Wonderful Life (Black, 1986) and Robert Wyatts Age Of Self (1985) - but this is the first time that he has assembled an album entirely populated with cover versions.
