MP3 of the Day #231: Paul Heaton

By on Thursday, 2nd September 2010 at 10:00 am

The smooth-as-silk voice of British crooner Paul Heaton has returned. Yet, in a way, the former front man for indie pop band the Housemartins and alternative group the Beautiful South never really left. As such, Heaton’s 15th (!) studio album, dubbed ‘Acid Country’, is set to be released next month.

Heaton’s upcoming LP is sure to go down a treat for the veteran fans of his pop sensibilities and clever lyricism. New listeners will also no doubt be impressed with the ample array of hook-laden folk rock tunes. To whet your appetite and in anticipation of Heaton’s future release due out on 13 September, here’s a download for ‘Even a Palm Tree.’
