It’s the first glimpse into his upcoming second album.

Following last year’s ‘A Quickening’, Orlando Weeks is giving us the first glimpse into his eagerly-awaited second solo album with new track ‘Big Skies, Silly Faces’.

“There’s something about that that’s always stayed with me,” he says, “the very English absurdity of making the most of a situation. The desperation for any potential silver lining. Really though I think Big Skies Silly Faces is about how I can be my own worst enemy.”

‘A Quickening’ found the former Maccabee ruminating on the more pensive aspects of parenthood. ‘Hop Up’ follows to show the more joyful side of the coin with a record rooted in lightness and pleasure.

An irresistibly likeable album, very much in the mould of its creator’s affable, mellow personality.
