Ed Harcourt to support Nathaniel Rateliff and The Night Sweats on UK Tour

THE 1 and only Ed Hardcourt has released 1 of the albums of 2016. Furnaces has been hailed unanimously by the critics as the record of his career. Ed releases the latest track taken from it:- 'Loup Garou' impacting 18 November 2016, on Polydor Records. Working closely with legendary producer Flood, (Nick Cave and The Bad Seeds, PJ Harvey and Foals), 'Furnaces' is Ed's most ambitious and abrasive album to date and 'Loup Garou' is 1 of its many highlights.  The track was inspired by Charles Mackay's book Extraordinary Popular Delusions & The Madness of Crowds. Ed explains:- "a 'Loup Garou' was known in France as a werewolf. People in villages would accuse the local hermit or village idiot of being a shapeshifting demon, blaming them for savagely murdering their children or causing plagues or illnesses. Loup Garous had nails driven into them for punishment and as such it could have much in common with the current public shaming that exists on social media."  After 4 blistering shows in 2 weeks at Glastonbury, headlining The Deaf Institute and The Borderline and the 2nd stage in Hyde Park supporting Carole King, Ed played a stunning full band show at a packed out Village Underground last week to rave reviews. His next jaunt will be a rawkus affair as support for 1of the breakout bands of 2016, Nathaniel Rateliff and The Night Sweats.
