On Permanent Way Cunningham laughs in the face of ‘difficult second album’ syndrome and ‘acoustic-singer-songwriter’ imagery with boosted colours and dynamics, while retaining the essence of the man’s achingly personable appeal.

In terms of production it’s more of a team effort: Duncan Tootill returns to co-produce (while adding piano and synth) but the album was predominantly put together alongside producer/engineer Sam Scott (who also adds brass and keyboards and percussion). A trip to LA for a session with producer Rodaidh McDonald (The XX, King Krule), added ‘Don’t Go Far, ‘Bite’ and ‘Force of Habit’ to the finished record.

Permanent Way documents life’s uncertainties: the need for intimacy and love, but also space and independence. “I’m quite a private person outside of performing” Cunningham admits. “There is some autobiographical stuff in the lyrics, but it flits in and out quite a lot; it’s much more about people generally and their interactions”
