Alan Bonner Night Music Album CoverUK singer-songwriter Alan Bonner is set to deliver his third album, Night Music – a smoky, dimly-lit collection of songs inspired by London and its nocturnal inhabitance.

As Bonner puts it: ‘songs inspired by drinkers, thieves, prostitutes, spurned lovers, fallen rock stars and chance meetings with strangers on night buses. Songs inspired by the disaffected creatures that take to the streets and the bars of the city when the sun goes down.

The album touches on personal tales of long-distance romances, family relationships and depression as well as world-encompassing topics of love, hope and mortality. This is all delivered with a vivid and poetic lyricism certain to appeal to fans of artists like Rufus Wainwright, The National, Sufjan Stevens and Perfume Genius.

Produced by Aneek Thapar and recorded in South London, Night Music’s backdrop is one of intimate pianos, orchestral strings and minimalist percussion that perfectly encapsulate the album’s title.

He holds this whole history of gay men’s relationships in his music that Beyonce as a straight woman will never once hold.’ – QX magazine

Bonner has regularly worked with LGBT charities, being a gay artist himself. His interests in social issues have also extended to substance abusers and the homeless, having worked voluntarily and professionally as a support worker.

Having already released two well-received previous albums, Bonner will hopefully build on his success with this new release. Already, he has received previous airplay on stations such as BBC6 Music and MTV Italy, and achieved press coverage from Grazia, Gay Times, Attitude, Time Out London and RTE Ireland.

Although based in London, the artist has spent a lot of time recently living out of a suitcase, touring extensively across the UK, Ireland, Europe, Australia and the US.
