We’re thrilled to premier “Broken Beauty”, a new track by Michael Head & The Red Elastic Band.
The song is a collaboration with Head’s daughter, Alice. “One evening Alice said: ‘I have an idea for a song,’ and asked if we could work on it together,” says Head. “When she told me the title and the story I loved it straight away. The way she told it was so inspiring. So, we put it together that night and, on the way, out she shouted ‘I’m thinkin’ big chorus and a trumpet solo!’ I think we nailed it. It’s all there.”
You can watch “Broken Beauty” below.
“Broken Beauty” is the second song taken from Head’s new album Dear Scott, after “Kismet”.
Produced by Bill Ryder-Jones, Dear Scott is released on Friday, June 3. To support the album, Head & The Red Elastic Band tour the UK that same month:
