Duke Special is an artist aptly named. Dynamic, musically ambitious & bracingly eccentric, with his inimitable style and lush musicality. Hailing from Belfast with a sound that is self-confessed “hobo-chic”, Duke Special - AKA the endlessly inventive Peter Wilson - is once heard, never forgotten. Blissfully at home in his own alluring genre of beautifully bruised romanticism, Duke Special inhabits a world unlike any other - a world filled with vaudeville-esque sensibility, sing-a-longs and addictive melodies.

On June 18th, Duke Special will be releasing his first new “commercial” music album ‘Oh Pioneer’. As a prelude to this new chapter in his musical journey, Duke Special will be releasing ‘Punch Of A Friend’ on April 27th as a free digital download via his website. Listen to it here

Carrying all the hallmarks of a classic Duke Special song, ‘Punch Of A Friend’ elegantly swoons through a melancholic daydream of soft harmonies, and tender orchestrated percussion. About the track, Duke says;

"Sometimes only a true friend can jolt us back to life when we're down or on a destructive path. And only a friend has the ability to speak the truth to us and at the same time help us up again. The punch of a friend."

In support of his single and the release of ‘Oh Pioneer’ Duke will be heading out on an extensive tour this May across the UK. ‘Oh Pioneer’ is available for pre-order now and you can watch a behind the scenes video of recording the album below
