In what is perhaps a somewhat unlikely pairing at first glance, Ben Howard and Sylvan Esso have come together on new song “Hot Heavy Summer”.
The track, which features in Ben Howard’s latest release of three brand new songs, feels like a quietly sweet ode to a summer now-past. Listen below:
The three songs (listen to the other two here and here) were written and recorded during the sessions for his recent third album, Noonday Dream.
“The recording sessions for Noonday Dream were so varied and over quite a period of time”, said Howard, “There were little gems that we didn’t know what to do with but it felt right to put these 3 together, both separate and a part of the album so to speak.”
Amelia (Sylvan Esso) is just incredible, fortune prevailed, and we managed to get in the studio. I had it in the back of my mind as soon as we initially recorded Hot Heavy Summer that the track just felt right for her.”
