Russian Roulette.tiff

Earlier this week I received a new track from UK singer/songwriter Ed Harcourt's forthcoming EP titled Russian Roulette!

The track "Caterpillar" points to a particularly intense and emotional moment in Harcourt’s life when earlier this year, his newborn daughter Roxy had been placed in an incubator, deeply worrying both Harcourt and his wife as they sat idle, waiting for their Roxy to recover. Describing the song and experience, Harcourt goes on to say, "It's the first song I've written about her. She was a little ill and we waited for her in the hospital for the chrysalis so we could take her home."

Russian Roulette will officially release May 5th.
