The follow-up to a successful album like White Ladder is never easy, and it is not much of a surprise that A New Day At Midnight does not surpass its predecessor. It's hard to guess what David Gray might have in his record collection as he leaves no musical clues in his own music. However, compared to recent work, the music does generally take on a more country feel with the use of steel guitars, although 'Last Boat To America' has a distinctly oriental start and 'Freedom' has a quasi-Polynesian sounding break in the middle.
A New Day at Midnight. 02 Record label: RCA Genre(s): Rock. 80 Music-Critic Score How the Music Critic Score works. Jumpin' Jesus, Holy Cow! by: bill aicher. After crashing through the American radio gates he'd been denied for years with his fourth studio album (originally released in 1998), White Ladder, and it's smashing single "Babylon," David Gray quickly became a household musical name. The album opens strongly enough with "Dead in the Water," an acoustic ringer for a future single and arguably one of the best tracks on the disc. Gray's signature vocals and return to superb songwriting stand out immediately, and trend which thankfully continues throughout A New Day. Where White Ladder focused primarily upon variations of the classic love song, A New Day At Midnight finds Gray once again stretching his songwriting to more "bigger-picture" issues.
Following the release of his 1998 crossover album White Ladder, David Gray suddenly found to himself shot to stardom in the UK, less so in the USA, and most notably in Ireland, where it became the biggest selling album by a solo artist of all time. However, successful and impressive as this album was, there was one flaw with it: it so overshadowed Gray’s career, that he was constantly going for one more tour, one more promotional appearance
The album is dedicated to David Gray’s father, Peter, who died of cancer in 2001 at the height of Gray’s popularity. A song entitled A New Day at Midnight, written about the birth of his first daughter, Ivy, was written during the album’s recording sessions but was not included on the album. A New Day at Midnight produced two singles: The Other Side in December 2002, and Be Mine in April 2003. Dead in the Water was released as a promo-only single in November 2002.
The Other Side" is a song by David Gray. It was released on 9 December 2002 as the first single from his sixth studio album A New Day at Midnight. The song deals with the theme of death (as Gray's father died in 2001. in the context of a heartbreaking failed relationship and the author's reflections on his own and his ex-partner's emotional and spiritual failings. The B-side "Lorelei" also appeared on the Japanese pressing of the album as a bonus track
A New Day at Midnight resists the twin temptations that present themselves to any artist with new-found mainstream success: it neither panders to Gray's audience with an imitation nor baits his fans with a radical departure. Intensely personal yet richly melodic, different without breaking new ground.
