In a longingly awaited follow-up to the utter stunner of an album that was A Larum, Johnny Flynn has recorded the Sweet William EP, one track of which, ‘Drum’ is now available as a free download here. What a kind old salt he is.
We think rather highly of the EP here at FFS (see our recent glowing review here) and Flynn’s debut album provided no small part of the impetus to create FFS all those months ago, so the sight of the follow-up on our musical horizon is a welcome one indeed.
This free track turns into a pumpkin on New Year’s eve, so make sure you make downloading it part of your advent preparations or you’ll be proper sorry. ‘Drum’ is a beautiful, rhythmic and deeply layered taste of what’s to come from Flynn in 2010. Get it, and the EP, and brace yourself for the album. We sure as hell will be.
