Ben Carrigan releases his new solo single, The Sweetest Stories, on Friday, 29th May (Ireland).  The new track, written and produced by Carrigan and featuring the vocal talents of New Zealand’s Thom Cross, is the follow-up single to his 2011 debut solo album, The Greatest Narrators. With a style falling somewhere between David Bowie and Neil Hannon, Ben croons his laconic way through this power ballad.

These diamonsds look divine on you
But exposed and in disguise they close their eyes on cue

A Pink Floyd-esque guitar solo breaks up the track,  supported by big backing vocals and strings. It sounds epic. Expect to hear this one on the better radio stations throughout the summer.
