A Man Apart follows 2011’s Shapes & Shadows and 2014’s Rattlebag.  Each album began to take shape in Los Angeles before being completed in his native England.  A Man Apart comes twenty years after Gomez’s Mercury Music Prize-winning debut Bring It On as well as the occasion of Ottewell’s 40th birthday.  To mark all of these celebratory occasions, Ottewell is taking the new material on the road in the U.S.A. beginning in September and running for one month.

“Nowadays, I just feel incredibly lucky to have had some kind of 20-year run at this, and if I can sustain what I do, great. I’m also starting to look a lot more like the way I sound”, adds Ottewell, laughing. “I’m not this fresh-faced kid freaking people out anymore!”
