Badly Drawn Boy releases his new single Silent Sigh through XL Recordings next Monday (March 25) and has made an acoustic version of the single available exclusively on the net.

Silent Sigh is his first major release since the million selling Mercury Music Prize winning, Hour of The Bewilderbeast and boasts a two format cd release including the following:

Silent Sigh (Radio Edit)
Silent Sigh (Acoustic Version)
A Better Way
Silent Sigh (Original Mix)
Silent Sigh (Broadway Project Remix)
Silent Sigh (Zongamin Remix)

The album, released April 8, was recorded in Los Angeles with producer and Bong Load Records founder Tom Rothrock (Beck, Elliot Smith) Badly Drawn Boy became involved with the film at the request of Nick Hornby.

“I wanted to get on with my own record. But I met them (the film’s creators), read the book and started to get a good feeling,” explains Gough.The soundtrack was written in its entirety by Badly Drawn Boy – including eight new compositions and all the incidental music.

The first offering from the new album was Donna And Blitzen - a limited edition 7” single released late last year, which sold out the day it went on sale.The film About A Boy starring Hugh Grant, Toni Collete and Rachel Weisz and directed by Chris and Paul Weitz (American Pie/Antz) is due for release at the end of APRIL.

Meanwhile Badly Drawn Boy has already started recording the follow up to ‘Hour of Bewilderbeast’ in Los Angeles.“I’ve got a clear picture of where the next record is going,” explains Gough.

“I want to plug in the electric guitar a bit more. It’s already feeling like a collection of songs that really work together.”
