Ben Howard to release new ‘Burgh Island’ EP including new single ‘Esmerelda’

Ben Howard fans are getting an early Christmas present this year in the form of brand new EP 'Burgh Island'

The unassuming indie star debuted the EP's lead single last night as part of Zane Lowe's Radio One evening show. Zane chose 'Esmerelda' as his Hottest Record in the World and teased the impending release date for Ben's new material.

'Burgh Island' shows us a darker side to gentle Ben than we've seen before. He's taken on a brooding, moody new sound just in time for the bleak midwinter.

This EP coincides with Ben’s biggest, sold-out UK tour to date, which takes in 3 nights at London’s Brixton Academy. .

'Burgh Island' will be released through Island Records on December 10. It comes months after Ben Howard's successful run on the UK festival circuit.
