Foundling is the stunning new effort by internationally acclaimed singer-songwriter David Gray. Foundling (defined as "an infant found after its unknown parents have abandoned it") is an extraordinary song cycle of rare and timeless power. As Gray puts it with a warm laugh, "Foundling sort of arrived at my door without my asking it to, so it felt very appropriate for this album."
Recorded at the same time as 2009's Draw The Line, Foundling looks like the most gorgeous and minimalist musical tapestry that David Gray has ever created. Like the recent productions of T-Bone Burnett, this is music that seems to exist almost outside of time, yet feels fantastically modern and stripped of all unnecessary varnish. "Because I've done so much recording lately, I think you eventually get braver," says Gray. "You think 'I can go even further with this -- I can do even less.' So there's definitely a sense here of reducing the songs to their absolute bare minimum. It's basically the record I've been wanting to make for a long time and it's as strong a statement as White Ladder in its own way. The album is like a stepping off point for what might happen next. It's like I'm really putting my money where my mouth is with this one." From the Label

I am a relatively new David Gray fan and bought "White Ladder" after hearing it at a friend's house. It is such a great CD that I was hesitant to buy David's new CD, "Foundling", thinking, how can you top that?! But he did! This CD, with the exception of a couple of songs on the second disc which didn't excite me, is exceptional. David reminds me of a modern Bob Dylan poet and selects music and lyrics which touches the soul.
