As Dan Mangan settles back into life on the road around Europe, he's unveiled this beautifully shot mini-documentary which shows him driving through the picturesque British Columbian landscape discussing his music.
Dan returns to the UK next week and will also be releasing 'About As Helpful As You Can Be Without Being Any Help At All', taken from his critically acclaimed album 'Oh Fortune' on April 30th through City Slang.
Complete with a nod to our own Wills & Kate in the opening shots, this short film shot by Annikki Heinemann shows Dan go on a journey not just through the stunning Canadian countryside, but also the root of his music, and how his song-writing and style has changed since starting out.
Currently on a European tour, Dan will be back on British soil on April 27th for a UK tour including sold out shows in London, Brighton and Manchester. Dan has also been added to this year's Camden Crawl and Summer Sundae festivals. To coincide with these UK dates, 'About As Helpful As You Can Be Without Being Any Help At All', the gliding, bittersweet opening track on last year's album 'Oh Fortune' will be released on April 30th.

27th: BRIGHTON, The Hope
