About this item

Stubborn Heart release a new single, ‘Better Than This’ from their acclaimed eponymous debut. The follow up to their 6Music A-listed ‘Starting Block’ single, it features a brilliant Graham Massey reworking of the original that opens the track up over 6 minutes 53 seconds. Says Massey: “Stubborn Heart have been to Vinyl University and wrought out a timeless heartbreak classic at the forward facing end of the UK soul boy time thread. Whilst remixing I was reverent of the parts and song delivery and did not want to just deconstruct the song, so I split the remix into two halves, a redressed version of the song as Part 1 flowing into a wider landscape in Part 2.”

On the flip is the alternate ‘Soft Version’ and the sumptuous melancholy of brand new song, ‘Do Tomorrow’, its tune woven around a simple motif that builds into a beatific Fripp-like crescendo
