Sweet Baboo is giving away new track 'Let's Go Swimming Wild' ahead of his upcoming album 'Ships'.
Working on the fringes for some time, Sweet Baboo sits in that great Welsh psychedelic folk lineage. One to file alongside Gruff Rhys, H. Hawkline and Gorky's, the songwriter nonetheless has an idiosyncratic streak that gives him a niche of his own.
At home on Moshi Moshi, Sweet Baboo is currently plotting his fourth album. Seemingly a brass laden pop effort, the material was laid down earlier this year with long term collaborator The Voluntary Butler Scheme. Due for release next year, the album will be preceded by upcoming single 'Let's Go Swimming Wild'.
Out on February 11th, it's a sweet, chirpy, upbeat track with Sweet Baboo intoning some adorably innocent lyrics.
Listen to it below.
