A Girl Called Eddy – Been Around

Are you familiar with the expression ‘a long time coming’? A Girl Called Eddy’s second solo album Been Around has been just that. In 2004, Erin Moran (her real name) released her first, eponymous album. She made it with former Longpigs and Pulp musician Richard Hawley. After first teasing her second album in an interview as early as 2014, it has now finally seen the light.

Moran doesn’t hide her love for the likes of Burt Bacharach, The Carpenters, and Prefab Sprout. No surprise then, the album has a sophisticated soul sound. Title track Been Around is the set’s first single. Brimming with soulful horn sections and background vocalists, it sounds like a classic already. It’s timeless, to say the least.

A Girl Called Eddy made an album the old-fashioned way. But real quality will always be fashionable. Good to have her back!
