Listen to C Duncan cover Cocteau Twins "Pearly-Dewdrops’ Drops"

Following the release of his debut album Architect, Scottish singer/songwriter C Duncan has announced a new EP, featuring four previously unreleased tracks. The first single he is sharing is a cover of The Cocteau Twins’ “Pearly-Dewdrops’ Drops”. The EP can be seen as a summary of the journey that the singer’s career has been so far; it brings together songs written at various points in his life and gives the listener practical insight into Christopher Duncan’s musical approach and inspirations.

Opening track on the EP is the giddy, fast-paced “A Year or So” — one of C Duncan’s more recent compositions. This is followed by the BBC Radio 6 Music live session version of “Garden”, performed live at Maida Vale studios for Lauren Laverne’s show; it is the third single from “Architect”. Third on the track list is “The Age For Love (Is The Wrong Age For Me)” — one of C Duncan’s earlier songs; albeit not what those who follow his work are used to hearing. To round it all off, the EP concludes with a cover of Cocteau Twins’ “Pearly-Dewdrops’ Drops” — a lovely tribute to his fellow Scottish musicians, whom Christopher cites as a major influence and an inspiration for his own music.
