Rag'n'Bone Man has announced the details of his sophomore album and shared its first single.

Three years after his award-winning debut, Humans, the singer-songwriter has returned with his Life By Misadventure album, which is set for release on 23 April 2021.

From the album comes the single All I Ever Wanted, an indie-infused track filled with choppy rhythm guitars.

Rag'n'Bone Man - whose real name is Rory Graham - scored an instant hit with his debut album, which spawned the singles Human and Skin.

However, the Sussex star has ripped up the rule book for its follow-up, bravely choosing to go in another direction and showing sides to himself we've never seen before.

The bulk of the album was produced and recorded by GRAMMY Award-winning producer and multi-instrumentalist Mike Elizondo (Eminem, 50 Cent, Fiona Apple, Alanis Morissette) at his studio just outside Nashville.

Recorded purposefully like a live album, the sound of Life By Misadventure is 100% raw and real with one song even recorded in Rag'n'Bone Man's garage. Still, the singer-songwriter wasn't hasty when it came to laying down the tracks.

"We had quite a time to live with the songs this time around,” Rag‘n’Bone Man explains. “Too often, how I’d done things before, was that we’d written a song and I had to sing it the same day, and that was the version we’d use on the album. This way, it was far easier to get real emotion into the music."
