Edward R. Announces BODY CORPORATE EP & Tour

Edward R. Announces BODY CORPORATE EP & Tour

Following hot on the heels of his return single 'Paradise', Edward R. is back with new release 'Why Won't You Love Me?' - the second single off his forthcoming EP Body Corporate . A blissful and dreamy expression of the mood of Body Corporate, 'Why Won't You Love Me?' is an immersive 70's-inflected slow jam on heartbreak and loneliness - a battle-weary lovechild of Tame Impala, Tobias Jesso Jr, and Tranquility Base era Alex Turner.

On the new single, Edward R. laments: 'I'm just a commoner looking for love in a world; and, as time goes on, I'm discovering I know less and less about both of those things.'

Forthcoming EP Body Corporate is the follow up to Edward R.'s much-loved 2016 debut EP Agrabah, a release which led to a triple j Unearthed Feature Artist spot, support slots with The Temper Trap, Holy Holy and LANKS, and over four million streams to date on standout single 'Wolves and the Water'. A five-song opus of intricate, immersive, psychedelic pop, Body Corporate reflects a period of uncertainty and emotional turmoil, and explores love, heartache and connection through the story of a man from the past who is transported into the future, looking for love. Over the five tracks, Edward R. explores these themes through chamber-pop hooks, dreamy guitar riffs and elegant, lush production, that harkens to the past but feels firmly planted in the present. Body Corporate is Edward R. proving himself to be one of the most interesting and versatile new voices on the indie scene.

Body Corporate is out October 12 via We Are Golden. Until then immerse yourself in the cinematic soundscapes of 'Why Won't You Love Me?' and lead-single 'Paradise'.

Off the back of a barnstorming return to the live stage at BIGSOUND last week, Edward R. will be jumping in the Tarago and playing a run of shows through the East Coast of Australia. Details below:
