After five hit albums, a Mercury Prize nomination and countless sold-out shows with The View, the band’s frontman Kyle Falconer will release his debut album in 2018.
A raw and brutally honest collection of songs, much of the record finds Falconer exploring a tumultuous time in his life. The majority of the songs cover a period which commenced when he entered rehab in the summer of 2016, right through to the present day where he’s now embracing a new life and outlook as a father.
Plenty of influential names have recognised Falconer’s talents over his career to date. He performed on Mark Ronson's hit ‘The Bike Song’ and also joined his live band The Business Intl. for some memorable performances which often included their take on the Amy Winehouse / The Zutons classic ‘Valerie’. Ronson and the legendary producer Quincy Jones also teamed up to provide a testimonial to support Falconer’s application for a visa for him to be able to work in America.
Kyle Falconer was a founding member of The View, the band signing their first record deal when he was just 18-years-old. Their debut album ‘Hats Off To The Buskers’ went straight to #1 in January 2007 and was later nominated for a Mercury Prize. Two of the band’s subsequent four albums also hit the Top 10, and they also released an unorthodox ‘best of’ in the shape of ‘Seven Year Setlist’.
