The Milk’s much anticipated sophomore album will be released by Wah Wah 45s in the summer of 2015. Whereas their first offering, Tales From The Thames Delta, produced by The Nextmen’s Brad Balloo, drew on myriad eclectic influences, their second long-player will see the band examine their soulful roots with honest, classic song-writing heavily influenced by 70’s Isley Brothers, Bill Withers and more.
To help achieve this, the boys have hooked up with sought after producer, and long time fan of The Milk, Paul Butler. Since his work on Michael Kiwanuka’s Mercury Music Prize nominated debut, the erstwhile front man for The Bees has been in huge demand, and it says something of Paul’s high regard for the band that he’s taken the project on. The band recorded the album at Mr Butler’s Chale Abbey studio on the Isle of Wight over the Christmas period.
In the meantime, enjoy the hauntingly beautiful Deliver Me.
