H. Hawkline (Huw Evans) has announced new album Milk for Flowers, which will be out March 10, 2023 via Heavenly. The album was produced by frequent collaborator Cate Le Bon -- they've played on each other's albums and he used to be part of her band -- at Rockfield Studios in Wales, with contributions from Davey Newington (Boy Azooga) on drums, Paul Jones (Group Listening) on piano, Tim Presley (White Fence, DRINKS) on guitar, Stephen Black (Sweet Baboo) and Euan Hinshelwood (Younghusband, Cate Le Bon) on sax, Harry Bohay (Aldous Harding) on pedal steel and John Parish (PJ Harvey, Aldous Harding) on "infrequent bongo."
Says Cate: "I watched my dear friend, H. Hawkline, fold into himself and extract from a terrible time an album so exquisitely raw, yet deftly graceful. I had the extreme honour of being trusted as producer and gently helped him tease this beautiful work into existence. He writes music and lyrics that are porous to all the hues of a day. He sits melancholy at the table with absurdity and no-one bats an eye. Not without effort but always with a natural hand moving pieces around from the inside out. It’s a beautiful thing to be continuously moved and surprised by an old friend."
