Lead singer, Scott Taylor, has said of the track: “We’re thrilled that our debut album is finally released. It’s been a hell of a journey with plenty of bumps along the road but we couldn’t be prouder or happier right now. So many people have supported us throughout and the realisation of this moment is a testament to the power of real rock fans out there. We thank you all from the bottom of our hearts and look forward to seeing you down the front soon!!”
Mason Hill’s debut album has been a long time in the making and was recorded in November 2019 at Riverside Studios in Glasgow, with singer Scott Taylor later travelling to New York to track his vocals. Acclaimed rock mixer Chris Sheldon (Biffy Clyro, The Foo Fighters) took the helm for the mixing and the album has been extremely well received by the critics.
