New Release & Tour: Ben Howard – Another Friday Night / Hot Heavy Summer / Sister

Ben Howard has returned with three brand new songs, written and recorded during the sessions for his recently acclaimed third album, Noonday Dream

One of the new songs, titled Hot Heavy Summer, features a collaboration with American electro pop duo Sylvan Esso – take a listen to all three tracks below…

Ben had this to say on the tracks: “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”

Ben is now back out on the road, taking Noonday Dream across the US and Canada in September/October, before returning to Europe for a stretch of dates in November. Ben will hit a series of arenas and multiple nights in sizeable rooms in the UK this December, ahead of three nights at Brixton Academy in January 2019…
