{Ed Harcourt}


It's hard to believe that British singer-songwriter Ed Harcourt's fifth album, The Beautiful Lie is barely releasing Stateside this week (on Dovecote Records). The album was undoubtedly one of my favorite albums of last year with hardly a weak spot on the album. My favorite moments come on reflective old-fashioned orchestrated songs like "You Only Call Me When You’re Drunk", "Good Friends Are Hard To Find", and "Until Tomorrow Then".

There are also plenty of catchy upbeat melodies (such as "Visit From The Dead Dog" and "Revolution in the Heart"). Harcourt has long been considered to be on the cusp of greatness ever since his first EP (Maplewood) hit the shelves, and after a UK Mercury Prize nomination for his '01 full-length debut album Here Be Monsters.

Ed Harcourt will make his US television debut on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno tomorrow night (Friday, June 6th).

Here's a couple of my favs:

"Revolution in My Heart"

"Good Friends Are Hard To Find"

Here's the video for "Revolution in the Heart"...
