Willy Mason's January 'Don't Stop Now' EP Sets Stage for New LP

Willy Mason will release a four song EP Don't Stop Now on January 14 in the U.S. as a preview of his forthcoming 2013 full length album Carry On (arriving December 3 in the U.K., U.S. date TBA). The new project, produced by Dan Carey (Hot Chip, MIA, Franz Ferdinand), will be released via Communion Records, the influential U.K.-based record label founded by Ben Lovett (Mumford and Sons) and Kevin Jones (Bears Den). Three of the four songs on the EP are taken from Carry On while the title track is a collaboration that was written and produced with a friend from Willy's home state of Massachusetts.

Mason will embark on a North American tour beginning on January 13 in Montreal. Having recently completed a run of shows supporting friend and Mercury Music Prize nominee Ben Howard, Mason is currently playing a string of his own sold out shows in the UK.
