The grandly titled From Icarus To Phoenix presents the long-planned new album from former Dexys Midnight Runners member Andy Leek. The singer-songwriter has unveiled a three-track sampler ahead of this which can be streamed below. This features the wistful, acoustic ballad ‘Beloved’, the Temptations inspired ‘Forgive Me (feat. Jackie Williams)’ and perhaps the most sombre of the three, the organ driven ‘Natalie’.
The sampler gives an insight into Leek’s forthcoming record, showing the variety of themes that are likely to be present. It’s promising stuff and the singer has clearly ploughed his vast musical experience into the record.
The album will be released on January 6th. Find out more on http://www.andyleek.com/
