And thank you for stumbling across my site.

If you're here, you’re probably already familiar with at least one of my musical projects. Perhaps you already know my shoegaze/dream-pop songs, which were released under the name Daniel Land & The Modern Painters. Or maybe you know the atmospheric landscape music I have released under the name riverrun. Or perhaps you will have heard about my previous involvement with better known bands like Engineers. You’ll find information about all of these things here. 

Although I’ve been releasing music for nearly a decade, this is the first time I’ve actually had a website. So, thanks for stopping by. And also, make sure you sign up to my mailing list to receive an unreleased song from my archives, or follow the link to my Store, where there's a lot of things you can download for free. Either way, thanks very much for your interest! It means a lot. 


You wait four years for a new Daniel Land album, and then... 

Hello everyone, 

Happy release day to me! I'm pleased to announce that my new album of songs, In Love With A Ghost is now available to purchase worldwide via all the usual platforms - including Amazon, iTunes, and selected independent record stores - and of course, from my own store!

Some exceptionally kind words and reviews coming in, including this one from Primal Music, who said: 

"Land demands some kind of greater perspective or respect with this album... this is a dreamy, original and somewhat experimental piece of pop music, built on the genius of performance, production, song writing and sound". 

But don't take my word for it! The full album is available to listen, stream or buy at the following locations, and there are plenty of CDs available at either of these links as well: 

From my website: http://danielland.co.uk/store 
From my Bandcamp: https://danielland.bandcamp.com/album/in-love-with-a-ghost 

Thanks so much to everyone who bought one so far! All previous outstanding CD copies of the album were shipped on the 1st, 17th and 23rd of this month depending on when they were ordered, and I've also released the digital pre-orders as well. 



SURPRISE! I'm also releasing a second album today. 

Disclaimer: this is not a song album. It is the new album my ambient side project riverrun. The new record, Romer Shoal is the fourth riverrun album and may be of interest for any fans of ambient music, particularly those of Harold Budd or Brian Eno (particularly his On Land era). 

Like In Love With A Ghost, the album was largely inspired by the time that my partner and I spent in and around the New York area in 2014 and 2015, but this time more focused on the coastal or harbour areas.... I see it as a companion piece to the new song album - alternative sides of the same coin -  and for a while I considered releasing the two as a double album. 

Having lived with this album for some time now, I think it's possibly the best riverrun album, and definitely my favourite one. In fact, this is one of the few records that I've made that I actually enjoy going back to listen to.  

I'm very aware that this kind of music doesn't have as broad an audience as my song work, so for anyone that wants to take a chance on it, you can download the album free of charge for a limited period at my Bandcamp page. There is, of course, also a limited run of 50 CDs for the discerning few of you who still prefer to have physical copies of things ;-)

Or you can read more general information about my riverrun project by clicking here. Please feel free to share this email with any friends you might think would enjoy this kind of music or appreciate the free download!

Thanks everyone,
