Daniel Knox has released two tracks from his upcoming new album ‘Chasescene’, including one featuring folk singer Nina Nastasia called ‘The Poisoner’.

“‘The Poisoner’ was the last song I wrote on ‘Chasescene'”, Knox says, as he explains the story behind the track. “I lived with someone who was secretly poisoning my food and I didn’t find out until it had been happening for several years. At that point things had already been poisoned in every other way”.

Working with Nastasia on the song was a much more positive experience. He goes on: “Nina Nastasia is probably my favourite living songwriter. The first time I heard ‘Run To Ruin’ it felt like being truly seen by someone for the first time. After I saw her perform I thought, this is something to live up to. I just admire her in every way”.

He adds: “Seeing her play in Chicago in 2006 was what made me start taking songwriting more seriously and made me want to give myself over to it”.
