Richard Swift's debut single will be 'Beautifulheart', plucked from Swift's barrel load of supremely crafted songs, with an exclusive b-side - the classic-era Prince track 'Paisley Park'. Swift's divine sounds hark back to a more explorative time when the likes of Nilsson and Randy Newman ransacked the brain with multi-layered tales and harmonies.

'Beautifulheart' is taken from his double-album debut, The Novelist/Walking Without Effort. This double album has been recently re-issued in the UK via Swift's new label, Polydor, and is sure to whet appetites for the long-awaited follow up Dressed Up for the Letdown set for February 2007 release worldwide.
His new album Underneath It All is out now.
