David Gray releases 'Greatest Hits'
David Gray releases his ‘Greatest Hits’ album on the 12th November. It will be proceeded by the brand new single ‘The World To Me’ on 5th November.
Trained as a painter at the Liverpool College of Art, in 1990 David Gray eschewed canvas for a career in music. After eight years touring and having been dropped by two record labels over the course of three albums – A Century Ends, Flesh & Sell Sell Sell - David repaired to his house to write and release White Ladder on his own label. To date that album has sold 6 million copies worldwide and established David as one of the UK’s most popular artists both at home and abroad. In Ireland, White Ladder remains the best selling album of all time.
Since then, he has had another 2 UK No.1 albums and won the prestigious Ivor Novello Award twice - in 2001 for his breakthrough single ‘Babylon’ and again in 2003 for the single ‘The Other Side’. He has also won a GQ Award for Best Solo Artist (2002), a Q Award for Best Single (2001) and nominated twice for Best Male (2001/2003) at the Brit Awards, alongside a Grammy Nomination for Best New Artist (2002). Two compositions from his most recent studio album Life In Slow Motion came from his work on the soundtrack for Amma Assante’s debut film A Way Of Life and landed Gray a 2005 BAFTA Anthony Asquith Award nomination for Best New British Composer. David continues to write and record at his studio in north London, and expects to have a new album ready for release by autumn 2008.
