The EP is now available of the three new arrangements of the album track 'For Emma' including a vocal version written by singer-songwriter Hero Fisher, a remix by Scottish post-rock pioneers Mogwai and a sublime solo piano track, performed by Armstrong on a Yamaha CFX Concert Grand Piano.
For Emma was originally a piano and string piece I wrote for a close friend of mine. Thanks to Lucy Pullin for introducing me to Hero [Fisher] who composed a beautiful song around the instrumental. She really created something very special.
Last night's concert at Union Chapel was fantastic. The support was incredible. For those of you who didn't get the chance to get your hands on a signed copy of the new album 'Sun On You', it's available through Craig's official store (link in comments)

My new single ‘Cornflower (Marelle)’ featuring Guy Garvey is out today! As a great admirer of Guy Garvey and Elbow’s music I’m thrilled he chose Marelle to write a song to and made it this beautiful.

I’m very pleased to announce my new album ‘Sun On You’ which will be released via Decca Records on September 7th. When composing I felt strongly that each composition gave me, the ensemble and the listener a moment to reflect. The unhurried nature of the pieces gives a sense of time standing still. I think I wanted the pieces to reflect a quietness and stillness.
