Wah Wah 45s are proud to present Trouble Gonna Bring Me Down, the new single by The Milk, taken from their forthcoming second album Favourite Worry, released this October.

The third taste of this already fast selling album is, as the band say, music for walking to. The closest the album comes to exposing their early hip hop influences, with a solid, rolling beat that is perfect for putting your headphones on and taking a long, serious walk. The single is backed up with the acoustic demo version of the album’s mellowest, most sentimentality drenched moment, Lose That Way. The demo truly shows in its rawness the songwriting and performance quality that this album is borne from.
Sometimes it takes a few bumps to find the right direction; often it involves experience, guts and self-belief to trust yourself and venture from one to find another. The Milk are a band that believe with utter conviction that they’ve now found their way.

Fuelled by a rediscovery of the music and artists that originally inspired their formation, the four walls of their studio were ablaze with a soundtrack of Bill Withers, Isaac Hayes and the Isley Brothers throughout the songwriting process for their new album.

Production Mastery

Eager to share their new songs, Deliver Me was released as a limited 7″ single in November 2014 – finding its way onto the playlists of BBC 6 Music’s Lauren Laverne, Huey Morgan and Gilles Peterson – while The Milk’s dedicated fans packed out Tufnell Park’s The Dome for the band’s triumphant live return. The band unveiled their new songs in full for the first time to an intimate sold out show at Hackney’s Oslo in July.

The Bees’ Paul Butler, who proved his production mastery with Michael Kiwanuka’s Mercury Prize nominated debut, invited the band to record at Chale Abbey, a medieval barn on the Isle of Wight. Guided by Butler, the sessions captured the genuine version of The Milk – the sounds and honesty of soul.

The Milk play a headline UK tour this autumn.
