Melbourne artist Dan Flynn may be familiar to Timber and Steel readers as singer-songwriter Major Chord, but this month he’s set to launch his brand new project Dan Flynn and The State of Things.

The new project puts Flynn front and centre as a singer-songwriter, stepping out from under the shadows of the Major Chord moniker. Dan Flynn writes and demos the songs in his single-car garage in Preston before bringing them to the rest of the band to workshop and rehearse.

Dan Flynn and The State of Things have announced plans to release their brand new album Preparing for Flight on the 16th October which will give fans a taste of how Flynn’s sound has evolved with the new project. That’s the cover art at the top of this article and the track listing is as follows:

1. Heavy lies the crown
2. Sunny Autumn Weather
3. Boy, can he run
4. Father like him
5. No through road
6. I used to know an anarchist
7. The state of Things
8. Waiting for the Riverman
9. Apocalyptic love song
10. Preparing for flight part one
11. Blanket in the snow
12. Preparing for flight part two

To celebrate the release of Preparing for Flight Dan Flynn and The State of Things will be launching the record at Shadow Electric in Melbourne on the 28th November, with more dates to follow soon.
