Damien Rice shares ‘The Greatest Bastard’ from new album

Taken from ‘My Favourite Faded Fantasy’ (take that, Kanye).

This October, Damien Rice is attempting to officially outdo Kanye West in the grandiose album title stakes with the similarly-named ‘My Favourite Faded Fantasy’. He’s already shared the frantic title track from that release - now a new track’s emerged, the slow, creeping, emotional juggernaut that is ‘The Greatest Bastard’.

Up there with ‘Cannonball’ in the voice-quivering, softly-acoustic slumber league, this is a waltzing ode to “lovers” and “losers” that speaks on a big level.

Listen to ‘The Greatest Bastard’ below.

Damien Rice is set to play a UK date next month. London Palladium hosts a show on 7th November. It’s a one-off date in the capital, arriving a fifteen months after his last concert in Switzerland
