Track of the Day #140: Steve Mason – Planet Sizes

Posted by Neil Wilson

Steve Mason - Planet Sizes
Former Beta Band man, and of course renowned solo artist in his own right, Steve Mason returns with a brand new album called Meet The Humans which comes out on 26th February.  The first of his new material to reach our ears comes in the shape of Planet Sizes.

With Planet Sizes, Mason merges traditional folk-pop beginnings into more expansive spacious electro.  “The universe is mine” proclaims Mason, in a track that sees him explore the human condition.  “The universe makes me cry” he also admits, switching to a more mournful tact.  The track manages to present both the joyful outbursts alongside the inwardly looking sorrow in a well balanced act.
