Song of the Week #58: David Gray "Fugitive"  
David Gray: "Fugitive" (live)

About 10 years ago, Gray delivered one of the best albums of the past decade in White Ladder. Recorded in his apartment in England, it was sparse, honest, gripping, and mesmerizing. You’ll remember “Babylon” from that album. That wasn’t even the diamond of the batch which was reserved for “This Years Love” and “Say Hello Wave Goodbye” or “Silver Lining” or “Please Forgive Me” or….

His new album is coming on September 11th and this is the first single, which I heard for the first time on Monday. It has his remarkable voice, a great melody, and that haunting David Gray vocal that draws you in and keeps you riveted. This is what songwriting is all about.
