#WildCardWednesday: Ben Howard – ‘A Boat To An Island On The Wall’

After 3 years away, Ben Howard is back with  his brand new single, ‘A Boat To An Island On The Wall’, the first song to be taken from his upcoming, third studio album Noonday Dream.

Having scored a Number 1 with his previous record, I Forget Where We Were, back in October 2014, Ben has clearly spent time crafting a song that is diverse from start to finish; it is a 7-minute epic that ascends from an eerie and unassuming start into a somewhat hauntingly grungy climax.

This song will surely affirm Ben Howard as one of the UK’s most unique and gifted artists and undoubtedly create excitement around his upcoming record release on 1st June 2018, on Island Records.

No music video has been released as yet, but we’ll keep you updated if one emerges online.

What are your thoughts of this diverse singer-songwriter? Do you have a #WildCardWednesday track to share with us? Please leave your thoughts or song suggestions in a comment or chat to us about it via social media.

Welcome to Muzik Speaks!

‘Muzik Speaks’ is a music community based on sharing!

We truly believe that music can ‘speak louder than words’ – when you can’t find any words to say what you think or feel, often, music can! Not only can music fit a given situation or emotion perfectly, but it is also the topic of many a conversation.

Discussions about music can bring people closer together or lead passionate people into many musical debates – the credibility of a band or artist; the quality of a song’s production; what well-crafted songwriting is, etc.

Whatever your musical passion or you’re listening to presently, this blog is aimed at bringing people together to share what they’re listening to, in the hope of forming a music-based community. Whether you reply to posts with a simple link to a music video or song, or wish to share the reasons and personal experiences for your love of that song, we want to hear all about how ‘Muzik Speaks’ to you!

The style of ‘Muzik Speaks’

‘Muzik Speaks’ will consist mainly of a daily theme for 5 days of the week. We will be posting songs/music videos at 8am every day, every week, related to each day’s theme. The hope is to bring new or popular music to you, for your enjoyment, but what we really want to hear from you, are your replies to each post with songs/videos based on the same theme for that day!

Why? Because we’re music lovers too, and we want to hear what popular, new or exciting music you’re listening to, and are sure other people will too!

Sharing is Caring!

This community is all about sharing, posting and talking – all about music!

The Daily Themes:

  • Mellow Monday – easy-listening songs to relax into the week ahead.
  • Two4Tunesday – two songs you can’t get enough of right now – these could be from popular or unsigned artists; it doesn’t matter what genre, it’s all about what you’re loving right now!
  • Wild-Card Wednesday – guilty pleasures, quirky songs, unreleased rarities, album tracks, etc. Something unusual which grabs you!
  • Throwback Thursday – popular on social media everywhere; it does what it says – songs which blast at you from your past.
  • Feel-Good Friday – something fun, happy and uplifting which give you that Friday feeling!

All that’s left to say, is welcome to the community…and now let the Muzik Speak!
