Ed Harcourt releases "Furnaces" - Title track from Flood produced album

ED HARCOURT RELEASES NEW SINGLE “FURNACES”

THE TITLE TRACK FROM THE NEW ALBUM FURNACES
OUT AUGUST, 19TH ON POLYDOR (PRE-ORDER)

Having already made available the gnarled track “Dionysus” (which was premiered on the BBC Radio 1 Rock Show) and the apocalyptic paean “The World is on Fire”, Ed Harcourt announces the next single to be taken from his forthcoming album, the title track “Furnaces” which is available now.

Stream “Furnaces” via YouTube / Spotify / iTunes

Working closely with legendary producer Flood, (Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds, PJ Harvey and Foals), Ed Harcourt’s seventh album studio album ‘Furnaces’ (out August 19th, 2016) is the most ambitious and abrasive album of his career.

Ed says of the title track, “I wanted this song to sound like a loping, clanking fire-breathing giant made out of machinery eating up the earth and spewing vast projectiles of junk out, leaving chaos and emptiness in its wake… I hasten to add that hope is never far away - but it is a distant lantern swaying precariously in the darkness.”
Fittingly, the album’s artwork was created by the legendary Gonzo artist and Hunter S Thompson collaborator Ralph Steadman. As well as playing most of the instruments on the album, Ed was joined by his dream line-up: drummer Stella Mozgawa of Warpaint, bassist Tom Herbert of The Invisible & Polar Bear, vocalist Hannah Lou Clark, and percussionist Michael Blair, a frequent Tom Waits collaborator.

After four blistering shows in two weeks at Glastonbury, headline shows at The Deaf Institute and the Borderline and a headline slot on the 2nd stage in Hyde Park supporting Carole King, Ed has announced a further headline show at the Village Underground in London on September 21st.

Ed Harcourt has enjoyed a truly unique career as a songwriter, producer and musician. Released six critically acclaimed albums to date, he also wrote and performed “The Way That I Live”, the soundtrack to Burberry’s 2014/15 festive campaign, which has garnered over 25 million views and 1 million streams.
