Ben Howard has released three new songs, written and recorded during his recent album sessions for ‘Noonday Dream’.
One of the new songs, 'Hot Heavy Summer' features a collaboration with Sylvan Esso. The other two are 'Another Friday Night' and 'Sister'.
"The recording sessions for Noonday Dream were so varied and over quite a period of time," he says. "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."
