Premiere: Sweet Baboo – ‘Wild Imagination’

A joyous return from the North Wales musician...

Sweet Baboo has always had a sense of innocence in his work. There's a purity to the feeling conveyed, with the North Wales songwriter going that little bit deeper.

New album 'Wild Imagination' drops on June 2nd (pre-order HERE), with Clash able to share the title cut.

It's a joyous return, one that skips and leaps with rare abandon. Sweet Baboo explains:

"I’m hoping that the sentiment of the song is pretty universal. As with a lot of this album, I wanted to convey the same sense of hope and joy I feel when I listen to Robert Wyatt or Arthur Russell singing. Musically, I love the mix of Jeff Lynne acoustics, cheap drum machine, Talking Heads keyboard riffs and Wings guitar licks and the middle eight is lifted straight from the Euros Childs songbook."
