Ed Harcourt is back with his seventh album Furnaces, the most ambitious and abrasive album of his career. Between the lines, anger breaks out on the question: How can we go on?
"These are songs about the menace and the threat that men in general pose to everything and everyone: women, children, nature," says Harcourt. "We've tried to mess with Mother Nature and completely plunder it and destroy it, but it will always come back and bite us in the arse. The earth will be around forever, but we won't. We're just so arrogant. That was my catalyst for this album."
Furnaces was produced by legendary producer Flood, a long-time ally of Harcourt, who has previously worked with the likes of Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds and PJ Harvey. Harcourt ist accompanied by drummer Stella Mozgawa of Warpaint, bassist Tom Herbert of The Invisible & Polar Bear, vocalist Hannah Lou Clark, and percussionist Michael Blair, a frequent Tom Waits collaborator
