Furnaces is the new studio album from Ed Harcourt, produced by long-time ally Flood and artworked by the iconic Ralph Steadman.

Harcourt will tell you that the album isn't a personal one, yet in writing an album of savage social commentary he's also bared a little of his own soul. When he writes about protecting the environment, he's also thinking about his own role as a father. When he writes about the male ego, he's turning his forensic gaze on himself. It's as if the prism he's constructed to see the world has also allowed him a better view of himself. Harcourt was also able to put together a dream line-up to record the album. Joining him and Flood in the studio were drummer Stella Mozgawa, of Warpaint, bassist Tom Herbert, of The Invisible, vocalist Hannah Lou Clark and percussionist Michael Blair, a frequent Tom Waits collaborator. The result is an album that, for all it's fire and brimstone, is also euphoric and celebrator. 'Furnaces' is an album unlike any other you'll hear this year. It is pure and true, and Harcourt performs it with a fierce kind of joy in his heart
