Sweet Baboo unveils new track "Wild Imagination"

13 April 2017, 11:49 | Written by Laurence Day

Sweet Baboo has lifted the lid on "Wild Imagination", the second track from his upcoming record of the same name.

Sweet Baboo - aka Trefriw-born musician Stephen Black - is following up 2015's The Boombox Ballads with a collection of songs about looking up and forwards. This new offering follows lead single "Badminton".

"I’m hoping that the sentiment of the song is pretty universal," Black explains. "As with a lot of this album, I wanted to convey the same sense of hope and joy I feel when I listen to Robert Wyatt or Arthur Russell singing. Musically, I love the mix of Jeff Lynne acoustics, cheap drum machine, Talking Heads keyboard riffs and Wings guitar licks and the middle eight is lifted straight from the Euros Childs songbook."
