Sweet Baboo - Wild Imagination

Taken from his upcoming new album, Wild Imagination, this is the new single and video of the same name. The album is due on 2nd June, and Sweet Baboo himself says of the title track:

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.

The Welsh word wizard is touring the UK in support of the release:

Monday 12th June - Boileroom, Guildford
Tuesday 13th June - Ramsgate Music Hall, Ramsgate
Wednesday 14th June - The Prince Albert, Brighton
Thursday 15th June - The Lexington, London
Friday 16th June - Clwb Ifor Bach, Cardiff
Saturday 17th June - Thekla, Bristol
Sunday 18th June - Soup Kitchen Manchester
