Since the mid-2000s, with hindsight, a relatively prolific period, Ed Harcourt’s albums have been a little while in coming. Time Of Dust is his new mini album and follows on from 2013’s piano and vocal triumph, Back To The Woods. Time Of Dust is somewhat darker than previous recordings. Harcourt has been working more as a songwriter for hire rather than a solo artist, Ren Harvieu’s Love is a Melody was written By Harcourt and features here as Love is a Minor Key.
Time Of Dust is available on vinyl LP.

After his triumphant "Back Into The Woods", where everything was stripped back to just voice and piano, Ed Harcourt has put a little meat on the bones, with haunting arrangements for the mini LP "Time Of Dust". Everything here has a darker timbre than earlier albums but "In My Time Of Dust" recalls previous work. "The Saddest Orchestra (Only Plays For You)" along with "Love Is A Minor Key" are the best songs on here. I can sort of understand a passing comparison to Elbow or Coldplay, but Ed Harcourt isn't as bland or annoying as either.
