Today at 3pm, Dennis Elsas will premiere a brand new song from Damien Rice. It's been eight years since this FUV fave released a collection of new material. Now we only have to wait until November 11th for the album My Favourite Faded Fantasy, which was produced by Rice and Rick Rubin. There are also a few NYC tour dates to look forward to (October 16 & 18 at The Box; October 17 at Warsaw), although they quickly sold-out. In the meantime, Damien has offered up a Public Radio Premiere of his new song "I Don't Want To Change You," and it comes your way on FUV this afternoon. (Stream the song via All Songs Considered).
