Ed Harcourt is poised to release his fifth studio album, The Beautiful Lie, in the US on June 3rd via Dovecote Records. The British Mercury Prize nominee recorded the bulk of the album on an eight-track in his grandmother’s house in Sussex – the rest done in East London’s Toe Tag studios, where The White Stripes recorded Elephant. Graham Coxon (Blur) lended his guitar for “Visit From A Dead Dog,” BJ Cole‘s pedal steel makes appearances on various tracks and The Magic Numbers performed backing vocals on “Revolution In The Heart” (download).
In addition to the new album, Ed will be performing on “The Tonight Show” on June 6th. Be sure to check it out, although in case you miss it, chances are we’ll have it posted when it becomes available!
