Description

King Charles is set to release his second album 'Gamble For A Rose' on 22nd January 2016, through Buffalo Gang via Kobalt Label Services. Following his biggest tour to date, a 28 nights in 28 days extravaganza that ended with a triumphant headline show at the London Forum, Charles set out to make "the album I should have made five years ago." Charles and old friend Marcus Mumford began demoing songs and decamped to a farm near Exeter with mattresses pushed up against the walls to make vocal booths and old friends to jam with including Charlie Fink and Tom Hobden (Noah and the Whale) and Winston Marshall (Mumford & Sons). The first song to be unveiled from 'Gamble For A Rose' is the album opener 'Loose Change For A Boatman', a passionate love song ("You say your love for me has waned from the storm, Your passions have fallen from the days of old, If ever you loved me, If ever at all, Our souls are tied."), which builds and builds before exploding into riotous, arena-leveling colour. Charles' recording story began in 2010 when a few months after a near-fatal skiing accident he won Grand Prize at the International Songwriting Competition for a piece called 'Love Lust'. Soon after he signed to Universal in America and relocated to LA where he made his debut album 'Love Blood' with Matthew Wilder (No Doubt, Christina Aguilera, Kelly Clarkson).
