Ed Harcourt – The Way That I Live EP (2014)

(UK) Acclaimed songwriter Ed Harcourt has topped off an eventful 2014 with new single ‘The Way That I Live’.
Recorded at the legendary Abbey Road Studios, with the same engineer and string ensemble who helped concoct his latest full-length album, “Back Into The Woods”, ‘The Way That I Live’ has been selected to soundtrack Burberry’s Festive 2014 global advertising campaign.

This year has involved far more than dabbling in catwalk anthemics though. In January 2014, Harcourt released a new record entitled ‘Time of Dust’. The 28-minute long mini-album was named album of the week by Guardian’s Alexis Petridis, who talked of the album’s “gothic grandeur”. With his producer, songwriting gun-for-hire hat on, he found himself working with Marianne Faithfull (touring the songs they wrote together throughout the UK & Europe), Kathryn Williams, Ren Harvieu and the hotly-tipped James Bay; and playing piano on Lana Del Rey’s latest album. Meanwhile, Sophie Ellis-Bextor’s hugely successful album “Wanderlust”, which he produced and co-wrote, has been awarded a silver disc.
Harcourt will return to the studio this winter to begin recording his seventh album. Working with Flood (Nine Inch Nails, PJ Harvey, etc), Ed’s new, much heavier scorched-heart sound will feature the added grunt of his new custom-made Beastatone guitar.
