Albert Gold is a sweet soul man from Hackney in East London. On February 9th he releases a track called ‘Endless’ and plays a special show supporting Sid Batham at Hoxton Bar & Kitchen that very night. ‘Endless’ is taken from Albert’s sophomore EP correctly entitled ‘Second’ and is a slinkily upbeat soulpop jam which traverses the urban generations: “I wanted it to sound like a song with an ‘80s feel and a 2018 vibe ” says the singer of his new single. “I had Luther Vandross in mind when writing it…”
The ‘Second’ EP is indeed the second out of three Albert Gold Extended Play releases slated to come out over the course of the year. The first was the summertime ‘17 ‘Oxygen’ EP wherein the lead track was co-written with Sacha Skarbek (Adele Miley Cyrus) in Kensaltown Studios as is the mightily melancholic 'Turn To Stone' track on this here ‘Second’ EP.
Bolstered by live shows for Vice Communion Tipping Point BMI / The Fix London In Stereo Sofar Sounds and Good Karma and backed by consistent airplay support from Huw Stephens at Radio 1 and Gary Crowley at BBC Introducing London Albert Gold put the finishing touches to the ‘Second’ EP at Red Bull Studios in South London late last year.

“Described as a bridge between Frank Ocean and Luther Vandross Gold doesn’t just go heavy on emotion or melody or rhythm - he excels in all areas.” - Line Of Best Fit
