Why now? It's Record Store Day this Saturday (21 April) which means independent record shops around the country will be full of exclusive, limited edition releases and we'll be showcasing some of the choice items in the run-up to the day. Richard Hawley's contribution to the 2012 releases is a ten inch vinyl version of Leave Your Body Behind, limited to 750 copies. The song is taken from his sixth album Standing At The Sky's Edge, which is released on 7 May.
Sounds like: Watching the sun melt at Woodstock.
