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.
