The View frontman Kyle Falconer works up to the release of his debut album ‘No Thank You’ on July 27 on Riverman Records, with the record's second single  ‘Family Tree’.

The track is arguably the song that unites the album - and the nearest blend of The View’s rambunctious anthems with Falconer’s more reflective solo songwriting.

A raw and brutally honest collection of songs, much of ‘No Thank You’ finds Falconer exploring a tumultuous time in his life. The majority of the songs cover a period which commenced when he entered rehab in the summer of 2016, right through to the present day where he’s now embracing a new life and outlook as a father.

Falconer recorded the album at Paul Weller’s Black Barn Studiolast summer. Working alone on twelve-hour-a-day / five-days-a-week schedule, he recorded all the instrumentation (except for drums, performed by Scott Duffy) and vocals, and also wrote the orchestral melodies on a Mellotron which were later completed in collaboration with the Rogue Orchestra. The album was then mixed by Charlie Russell (Kasabian, Jake Bugg).

Kyle Falconer will play his first London solo headline show at the Heavenly Social on July 18.(see full tour dates below).
