Stepping up the tempo, here is another new track from Ben Watt's upcoming album 'Hendra', titled 'Nathaniel'. It's a song inspired by a road sign he saw in Oregon. About the track Ben said "It is about how we deal with grief, in private and in public. It is also about love, strength of character and has some merciless lead guitar from Bernard Butler."
