It might not be every day that we head to the high-brow realms of BBC Radio 4 to hear our favourite new music.
But thanks to this week’s edition of the show Loose Ends, we were compelled to do just that with the news that Welsh singer-songwriter Sweet Baboo would be performing a brand new track live.
‘Two Lucky Magpies’ is from the ingeniously titled upcoming album Boombox Ballads, which will be released by Moshi Moshi Records on Friday (August 14th).
The song is a touching and heartwarming earworm that never risks stepping too far into the land of the twee.
Backed up by some delectable strings, Sweet Baboo aka Stephen Black glides through this four-minute wonder – receiving rapturous applause from the studio audience. Another great album looks like it’s tantalisingly close.
Listen to Sweet Baboo play ‘Two Lucky Magpies’ live on Radio 4 below and get Boombox Ballads via Moshi Moshi from Friday.
