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."

James - Living In Extraordinary Times (Album Review)
Wed 08 Aug 2018
Listening to 'Living In Extraordinary Times', the thought occurs that indie-pop stalwarts James aren’t dissimilar to a shark. Such is the Manchester octet’s devotion to exploring fresh textures, with an insatiable forward momentum, that if they stop moving it’s likely they’ll immediately shuffle off to the great gig in the sky. Fortunately, if the band’s most recent output - and especially this effort - is anything to by, they won’t be playing chess with the Grim Reaper any time soon.

The Lemon Twigs - Go To School (Album Review)
Thu 30 Aug 2018
Rock operas are a risky business. If you pull it off, maybe with your own ‘Tommy’ or ‘Quadrophenia’, you’re forever heralded as a genius. If you fail, and produce something as aimless as it is pointless, you’re marked for the rest of your career as something of an overblown bore. Well, the Lemon Twigs have accepted the challenge. And in true Twigs fashion, it’s completely and utterly bananas.
