Ed Harcourt announces new album 'El Magnifico'

Following on from the release of his highly-praised 2020 LP 'Monochrome To Colour', Ed Harcourt has now announced his plans for a new studio album, arriving next year.

The new full-length 'El Magnifico' is being previewed by the new lead single 'Strange Beauty', which comes accompanied by a stunning Steve Gullick-directed video, and is set to be released on the 29th March via his own Deathless Recordings.

Speaking about the new offering, he said, "A song that uses visceral imagery to convey that classic old feeling of love and the immense power it has. I think that even after being a reckless, naive romantic after all these years, I still want to describe how violently mad it can make one feel. It’s about escapism, there’s an us against the world aspect, not adhering to the confines of society I guess. The song was written a while back and then lurked in a drawer for a few years…then I gave it the kiss of life and it sprung back with magnificent vigour!"
