Visit From The Dead Dog
Ed Harcourt returns with his stunning new single 'Visit From The Dead Dog' on 22nd May. A wonderful slice of what's to come from his new album 'The Beautiful Lie', 'Visit From The Dead Dog' features Graham Coxon on guitar.
Here's Ed talking about the story behind the single - "This song comes from my grandmother on my father's side. She used to wake up and sense this presence on the bed, this darkness, like a wild dog. It used to terrify me. The song's about going back to childhood, the innocence you believe you had".
These dates represent the first chance to see Ed playing tracks from his new album 'The Beautiful Lie'. The album is Ed's most accomplished album to date, more realised than anything before and equally ambitious.
Ed has just announced a new tour in June:
Sun 4 Wolverhampton, Wulfran
Mon 5 Glasgow, Oran Mor
Tue 6 Manchester, Ritz
Wed 7 Leeds, Irish Club
Thu 8 London, Union Chapel
Fri 9 London, Union Chapel
