The singer-songwriter has spoken to Radio X's John Kennedy about his Noonday Dream album and its first single A Boat To An Island On The Wall.
Ben Howard has shared the details of his first album in four years and its debut single.
Listen to his sprawling seven-minute track A Boat To An Island On The Wall:
Speaking about epic single he told Radio X's John Kennedy: "It was never supposed to be that long, but I guess I just got carried away..."
He added: "It felt like a kind of constant conversation [...] It's not a resolute answer that song, it's sort of like a question."
