More Info
Haunting and other-worldy new record from Ed Harcourt, his ninth studio album.

Recorded at his own ‘Wolf Cabin’ studio in rural Oxfordshire between January and October 2019, this beautiful 12-track album was written and produced entirely by Harcourt. It features Clive Deamer from Portishead on drums on three tracks, and Gita & Amy Langley on violin & cello respectively.

The new album is full of rapturous outreach. It was made with an interesting blend of instrumentation, ancient and modern. There’s a 1910 Hopkinson baby grand piano, and also a dulcitone, a 19th-century oddity where hammers strike an array of tuning forks.

Imagine for a moment that you're a really nice guy (though you don't always want people to know), a cool dude. Imagine you were discovered as a sensitive singer-songwriter. Then imagine you have a thrash band as a side. project. And you have success as a soundtrack composer. You're the go-to guy for top singers who want to collaborate with someone they can trust. You develop the rock side of your career with a searing portrait of a millennial globe, sunk in corruption and greed. And have the ability to catch your fans off-guard with not one, but two unsung instrumental albums. Obviously, they're both completely different to each other. Imagine that the album that's coming out tomorrow is ENORMOUS! So big, on occasion it threatens to go all Kamasi Washington on you, but your tight rein on everything is secure. Imagine you're so talented musically, you can be like Prince or Stevie Wonder and play all the instruments on the album, but you're married to a sensational and beautiful violinist. Your "sister in law" is pretty darn good, too. Your mate plays drums and you can weave a tapestry of sound that accommodates them all while you can paint panoramic soundscapes that sound contemporary yet somehow classical. Vulnerable but totally in charge. Imagine people who hear tomorrow's album are going to bandy words like 'genius'. Imagine all of that. Your name is Ed Harcourt.
