Ed Harcourt, the prolific Brit rocker, has released a 28-track album of b-sides and rarities in a download-only format. Elephant’s Graveyard also includes several unreleased tracks including “The Unlucky One,” and “She Put a Curse on Me (Parts I & II).” Harcourt’s website includes extensive descriptions of each track, for example commenting on track 23, “Deathsexmarch,” Harcourt writes, “How to lose friends and alienate your fans/record company…[the song includes] my debut performance on the musical saw.” The album also has guest vocals by Swedish heartthrob Sondre Lerche. In coming weeks, Elephant’s Graveyard will also be available via Harcourt’s website.
