Last Night I Nearly Died
On Monday the 16th of October, Duke Special releases his new single 'Last Night I Nearly Died'. Duke has just been confirmed to perform on Later With Jools Holland next month, and has just announced a new London show at the Purcell Room on 13th December.
"I want to capture something dusty and beautiful on record, something that sounds like Christmas smoking through an old wooden radio." says Duke, and the new single is exactly that.
Hailing from Belfast with a sound that is self-confessed "hobo-chic", Duke Special is once heard, never forgotten. Following four stellar live dates in London recently, the acclaimed singer/songwriter releases the lusciously eccentric new single 'Last Night I Nearly Died (But I Woke Up Just In Time) on V2, October 16th.
