If you’ve followed this site for the last few years you’ll know that we can’t sing the praises of Curtis Harding highly enough. I constantly describe him as the only contemporary soul artist who doesn’t sound derivative. After three years, he has a new album, Face Your Fear, coming out on the 27th of October via Anti-Records; produced by Sam Cohen (the song, Wednesday Morning Atonement posted below was produced by Danger Mouse). You can listen to the three songs released so far below the jump, which sees Curtis in superb voice, with an emphasis on keyboards and rhythm over the guitars and horns of his outstanding debut, Soul Power. I’d be amazed if this didn’t end up being one of my favourite albums of the year. In support of Face Your Fear, you can catch him at Rough Trade on the 2nd of November. Tickets are available now.
UPDATE: You can hear another new tune, Go As You Are, after the jump, it’s a slow, funky number, that compliments the other new tracks perfectly. I for one can’t wait to hear the record.
