The Irish singer-songwriter Damien Rice has been away for eight years, but he’s back this fall with My Favorite Faded Fantasy, the new album that he made with producer Rick Rubin. He made the big announcement of his return by sharing the intro to the title track, and now he’s letting us hear the full six-minute songs. “My Favorite Faded Fantasy” is a grand, orchestral slow-builder, a power-ballad that’s too polite to announce itself a such. It’s pretty! Give it a listen below.
My Favorite Faded Fantasy is out 11/11 on Warner Bros.
