Ben Howard Shares Three New Tracks Written During 'Noonday Dream' Sessions

Friday, 14 September 2018 Written by Laura Johnson

Ben Howard has shared three new tracks. 

Another Friday Night, Hot Heavy Summer, featuring Sylvan Esso, and Sister were written and recorded during the sessions for his latest LP, 'Noonday Dream'.

Similar to the record, the first two songs are laid back, indie-folk numbers where Howard plays guitar over subtle backing, while leading us through his narratives with understated vocals. Sister, though, is largely an a cappella piece. Howard said:

"The recording sessions for Noonday Dream were so varied and over quite a period of time. There were little gems that we didn't know what to do with but it felt right to put these 3 together, both separate and a part of the album so to speak. Amelia (Sylvan Esso) is just incredible, fortune prevailed, and we managed to get in the studio. I had it in the back of my mind as soon as we initially recorded Hot Heavy Summer that the track just felt right for her."

Primal Scream - Give Out But Don't Give Up: The Original Memphis Recordings (Album Review)
Tue 16 Oct 2018
Primal Scream continue to divide opinion. As a ‘90s indie band they are a bit of an also-ran: a group who produced some excellent music while being outshone by bands who had more consistency across membership and sound like Blur, Oasis and Pulp.
Twenty One Pilots - Trench (Album Review)
Mon 08 Oct 2018
In 2015, Twenty One Pilots got their big break. The Ohioans’ fourth album, ‘Blurryface’, summited the US chart and sent two singles into similarly rarefied air. The following year another song, Heathens, ushered in the soundtrack to the hit film, Suicide Squad. The resulting period has seen the band ascend to arena-filling stardom and paved the way for ‘Trench’, a record that combines their distinctive blend of elaborate production with re-upped nu-metal.
