Teddy Thompson “Heartbreaker Please” – Listen

Noted Dori Freeman collaborator and scion of a noble house, Teddy Thompson actually sent this song of ended love out into the world on Valentine’s Day.  It’s the antithesis of romance though, as it comes from an ended relationship as Thompson notes “I was dating an actress at the time and living a strange sort of existence. As an artist you can get used to being in the spotlight, but in this relationship I sort of became the +1 and I was skirting around doing my own thing.

Teddy Thompson will be touring the UK with  John Grant on the following dates:

Mon 4th May – CARDIFF, New Theatre
Weds 6th May – BEXHILL, De La Warr Pavillion
Thurs 7th May – LONDON, Alexandra Palace Theatre
Fri 8th May – GREAT YARMOUTH, Hippodrome Circus
Sun 10th May – COVENTRY, Warwick Arts Centre
Wed 13th May – GATESHEAD, Sage Gateshead
Thurs 14th May – EDINBURGH, Festival Theatre
Sat 16th May – BATH, The Forum
Sun 17th May – MANCHESTER, RNCM Theatre
Tues 19th May – IRELAND, DUBLIN, The National Concert Hall

Sure, I could climb high in a tree, or go to Skye on my holiday. I could be happy. All I really want is the excitement of first hearing The Byrds, the amazement of decades of Dylan's music, or the thrill of seeing a band like The Long Ryders live. That's not much to ask, is it?
