Exclusive: Dan Raza shares new track ‘Pay Day’ and second album details

An introduction to his second album, aptly named Two, Dan Raza is sharing his latest track, ‘Pay Day,’ exclusively on Gigslutz.

Having already grabbed the attention of Neil Young – with track called ‘Every Little Dog,’ written in the wake of the Iraq war featuring on Young’s website – Two, sees Raza step it up even more, and ‘Pay Day’ is a fitting prelude for the album.

‘Pay Day’ is gutsy; it’s gritty, strong and wildly exciting. Yet underneath it, Raza still tackles the song with a certain gentleness, an ability to play with a whole host of emotions. It’s nostalgic – a particularly vintage bluesy highlight of the album – but Raza brings it to today, and presents his songwriting as both relevant and poignant.

Two is out 7th July 2017
