A product of Oxford’s prolific creative community, Chad Valley has a catalogue that spans three studio releases – a pair of EPs came in 2010 and 2011 followed by Young Hunger in 2012, his first proper album and one that saw him further embrace his pop ambitions, featuring an impressive list of collaborators including Glasser, Twin Shadow and TEED. Now, Chad Valley’s Hugo Manuel is back with his sophomore album, Entirely New Blue. The
record is an exploration in identify and a return to the places that comfort us. Written between Oxford, London and New York and partly co-produced by Joel Ford, Entirely New Blue was released on October 2 2015 via Chad Valley’s longtime label home, Cascine.
