Press Info:
Charlie Cunningham’s new album ‘Permanent Way’ is released today via Infectious/BMG.

Cunningham has clocked up in excess of 6 million streams on the back of recent singles ‘Bite’, ‘Sink In’, ‘Don’t Go Far’ and the album’s title track in the last two months.

His unique combination of agile guitar – the result of two-year sojourn in Seville – and distinctive, spectral melodies has, via three EPs and a debut album ‘Lines’ released to widespread acclaim by Dumont Dumont in 2017, seen Cunningham rack up to over 165m Spotify hits to date.

On ‘Permanent Way’, Cunningham laughs in the face of ‘difficult second album’ syndrome and ‘acoustic-singer-songwriter’ imagery with boosted colours and dynamics, while retaining the essence of the man’s achingly personable appeal.

‘Permanent Way’ documents life’s uncertainties: the need for intimacy and love, but also space and independence. “I’m quite a private person outside of performing” Cunningham admits. “There is some autobiographical stuff in the lyrics, but it flits in and out quite a lot; it’s much more about people generally and their interactions”

Duncan Tootill returns to co-produce in part, but the album was predominantly put together alongside producer/engineer Sam Scott.

A trip to LA for a session with producer Rodaidh McDonald (The XX, King Krule), added ‘Bite’ as well as ‘Don’t Go Far’ and another song to the record.

Cunningham has just completed an extensive tour of the US ahead of a sold out headlining show at Queen Elizabeth Hall at London’s Southbank Centre on June 12th.

Along with his band he takes to the road again in October for dates across Europe ahead of a headlining UK tour in November.
