Rag‘n’Bone Man reveals new album 'Life By Misadventure' this April 2021

This April, Rag‘n’Bone Man returns with his second studio album, Life By Misadventure.

Three years after releasing his groundbreaking, award-winning debut, ‘Human’, the British singer-songwriter reutrns with a bang, much to his fans clamor. ‘Life By Misadventure’ is an incredible collection of emotional songs to touch us when we need it most, led by its first single 'All You Ever Wanted,' a song propelled by choppy rhythm guitars and a restlessness we’re all currently feeling.
“I’d felt sad looking around Brighton and London where I grew up…remembering all those cool places that aren’t there anymore,” said Rory Graham, aka Rag‘n’Bone Man. 
Initially released in 2017 as a debut, Human reached tremendous level of success; being a 4x platinum album which shot to #1 week of release in the UK, as well as becoming the fastest-selling album by a male artist for the entire decade and earned him BRIT and Ivor Novello Awards.

If that’s a hard act to follow, Rag‘n’Bone Man tore up the rule book and went to Nashville to write and record what would become ‘Life By Misadventure’, returning to the UK just before the pandemic first erupted. While a dose of heavy blues and soul lives within some of these new tunes, the majority of this new album finds this critically-acclaimed musician taking a huge step forward, making him capable of showcasing tremendous warmth and real emotion with every breath.

Grammy Award-winning producer and multi-instrumentalist Mike Elizondo (Eminem, 50 Cent, Fiona Apple, Alanis Morissette) produced this album at Graham's studio just outside Nashville.

Differing from the maiden release, Rag‘n’Bone Man's Life By Misadventure has been recorded purposefully like a live album – the sound is real and 100% human. It features long time collaborators Ben Jackson-Cook (keys, co-songwriter, and co-producer of the album), Bill Banwell (bass, and co-songwriter), and Desri Ramus (backing vocals) along with drummer Daru Jones (Lazaretto-Jack White) and guitarist Wendy Melvoin who joined Prince’s Revolution at the age of 19. Together, these musicians have made an album full of joy and immediacy, something all too rare these days of autotune and countless overdubs. One song was even recorded in Rag‘n’Bone Man’s garage.
“We had quite a time to live with the songs this time around,” explained Rag‘n’Bone Man. “Too often, how I’d done things before, was that we’d written a song and I had to sing it the same day, and that was the version we’d use on the album. This way, it was far easier to get real emotion into the music.”
“Life By Misadventure’ is the perfect tonic for these times. An album of depth and soul, about growing up and moving forward. Enjoy the trip. Visit Rag‘n’Bone Man's official website to know more about the album
