Kyle's new solo album, No Love Songs For Laura, is out now on Honey Pie Recordings. Featuring the singles 'Wait Around' and 'Stress Ball'. “Driven by a love of soul, pop, and classic songwriting.” ~ Clash.
The View frontman ignited anticipation for the record with two lead singles ‘Wait Around’ and ‘Stress Ball’. Eclectic support for the two tracks included a playlist at Radio 2, a session for Chris Evans’ Breakfast Show on Virgin Radio, praise from Clash and NME, plus adds to Spotify playlists including Peach and Transistor.
No Love Songs For Laura is an anthemic 13-track set that takes Kyle Falconer in bold new musical directions that has him sounding like he’s never sounded before. It’s a record that works the heart as much as the head, the dancing feet as much as the punching fist of joy. It’s an album of emotional highs and occasional confessional lows which reflects upon both his home life, with his wife Laura and two children, and the journey he has undertaken to arrive where he is today.
“Laura doesn’t need me to write her a love song,” says Kyle. “This is a collection of the emotions, life events and stories that have blown my mind in the last couple of years, and got me to where I am today. it’s a bit of an in-joke between us every time we listen to the mixes in the car together that these were not love songs for Laura but more just a soundtrack to the life we’ve made for ourselves.”
