about

Lustre is Ed Harcourt's fifth studio album. It was released in 2010 via his own Piano Wolf label. edharcourt.com

On its release, the critics said:
"completely charming" - Drowned in Sound 8/10
"...a singer of uncommon charm, and Lustre is a welcome reminder that when he’s on top of his game, you’ll want for little else." - BBC
"Having branched out by working with everyone from Patti Smith to Mark Linkous, one of the UK's most gifted all-rounders returns rejuvenated" - Uncut 8/10
"...whereas the likes of Dylan, Cohen and Waits seem to operate with impunity even when their material is lackluster, Ed Harcourt has lustre in spades. He also has talent, ideas and songwriting skills that often soar to majestic heights." - The Quietus
"...the Sussex brooder's first studio album in four years is reflective and occasionally darkish" - The Guardian
