Festive spirit as Ben Marwood offers his EP for freeBy Linda Serck
January 03, 2013
Reading's Ben Marwood is in a generous mood, with it being the festive season and all.
Plus he’s also in a good mood as the alt-folk singer’s long-awaited second album has been completed.
So to warm us all up for the ‘slew of new releases heading your way in 2013’, as he puts it, he is giving away a free EP of re-recorded, stripped back and live versions of some old songs that pre-date his debut album.
The five-song EP, available on bandcamp, features: Friendly Fire, Five Little Secrets, You Can Hold On Once, More Good Propaganda, and Question Marks.
“Originally, the idea was to give it away to the first 100 interested parties,” says Ben, “and then we hit 100 all too quickly, and I extended it to 200.
“After a whole bunch of lovely people donated money for it I extended the limit to 5,000, which is a frankly silly number although we’re well on the way, and I look forward to hitting it.”
