Oft-heartbroken Keaton Henson is back in the lead up to the release of his new album Birthdays. Having been stunned (and I don’t use that word lightly) by the deeply personal lyrics and raw emotion of Keaton’s delicate, acoustic debut album Dear…, it was with great excitement that we heard the heavier, rockier “Kronos” and learned that the singer had been in LA recording with producer Joe Chiccarelli (The Strokes, The White Stripes, The Shins). He followed that with “Sweetheart, What Have You Done To Us,” the crushingly downbeat tale of a relationship gone wrong, and is back in the same sad vein with “Lying To You.”

Enjoy the cathartic lead single  below, and watch out for Keaton’s debut album, out on February 25th.
