Earlier this week, Damien Rice released "The Greatest Bastard," a track from his third studio album, My Favourite Faded Fantasy. Listen to the heartbreaking song above on SoundCloud.

Acoustic finger-picking gently supports Damien's singing as his voice goes from a soft whisper to a strong yell. Cascading waves of piano and strings carry the song to an emotional high, before ending with acoustic guitar once again. Lyrics have always been a strong characteristic of Damien's songs, and in "The Greatest Bastard" they are honest, firm, and full of emotion.

Damien has previously shared "I Don't Want To Change You" and "My Favourite Faded Fantasy, both which you can hear on Zumic.

The LP My Favourite Faded Fantasy will be released on November 10th via Vector Recordings / Warner Bros. It is currently available for pre-order on Amazon (Vinyl, CD, MP3) and iTunes.
