Kyle Falconer has announced a new covers EP as well as won Best Album at Scottish Music Awards.

Falconer commented, “I’ve just loved this song since I was a child. I’ve always known that it was partly composed by Graham Lyle who is a fellow Scot and inspired me as a child to write songs myself. I just thought it would be apt for a Scottish vocalist to put a different spin on it. I hope I’ve done it justice.”
The full EP will be available on Spotify on 08 February 2019.
Kyle Falconer is a founding member of The View. The band landed their first record deal when he was just 18-years-old and went on to release five hit albums and play countless sold-out shows.
