Ben Howard returns with the single A Boat to an Island On The Wall suggests he’s keen to continue to push the boundaries with sonic envelope moving further away from the troubadour tag of his early days, the track at over seven minutes long is a sprawling hypnotic track It is the first taste of the June release Noonday Dream, Ben performs Towing The Line on Later… with Jools Holland on BBC Two (Recorded 15th May 2018).

The full length LP is his first since 2014’s ‘I Forget Where We Were’, although he did contribute to last summer’s debut from A Blaze Of Feathers. The new record emerges later this year, and was produced by Ben himself in numerous studios between South West France and South West England, including Sawmills.

Ben Howard also performs Nica Libres At Dusk on Later… with Jools Holland on BBC Two (20th May 2018). ‘Nica Libres at Dusk’ is the opening song from Ben’s forthcoming LP ‘Noonday Dream’.

Ben Howard’s first single from his new album- Noonday Dream A Boat To an Island On The Wall

“A Boat To An Island On The Wall” is a sprawling, mesmerising track that shifts restlessly, rocking back and forth like that small boat on the waves, with the familar sound of Howard’s low, gruff vocals.

Tickets for a new Ben Howard tour go on sale on 13th April, and will include shows in Lisbon, Oslo, Berlin and Paris, plus two dates in London, one in Edinburgh, and one in Cornwall at the Eden project, before he and his band perform at several summer festivals including Rock Werchter in Belgium, Mad Cool Festival in Madrid, and Lollapalooza in Berlin.
