Lone recently announced details of his forthcoming new album 'Reality Testing' with the taster track '2 Is 8' which garnered suitable attention and excitement befitting of an artist and producer of Mat Cutlers impressively prolific output over the years of putting brilliant music in our ears.

'Smalls Change (Meditations Upon Ageing)' arrives in April.
The two awards have made for a great 72nd birthday present for the country music icon.
