A wonderful return from an often under-rated talent...
Michael Head & The Red Elastic Band

Michael Head & The Red Elastic Band have shared new cut 'Josephine' - tune in now.

Michael Head is one of this country's finest songwriting talents, someone whose walls deserve to be decorated in gold discs.

Such trinkets are of little use to the Liverpudlian artist, though, whose love/hate relationship with the industry is the stuff of legend.

Michael Head & The Red Elastic Band have reconvened, with a new album set to be released later this year.

New cut 'Josephine' is a wonderful lilting return, matching jangling guitars to folk-hewn tapestries and even some gospel-tinged backing vocals.

It's superb - tune in below.

Michael Head & The Red Elastic Band will play London's Union Chapel on September 8th.
