Watch: Sweet Baboo – ‘Got to Hang on to You’

Welsh singer-songwriter Sweet Baboo has just released the video to the track ‘Got To Hang On To You’, taken from his fifth album The Boombox Ballads. Premiering on DIY now, the video sees the Welsh pop wizard surrounded by mirrors – Sweet Baboo’s most reflective video yet!

The new album of personal love songs combine kitchen sink detail with universal appeal, and it shows a new side to Sweet Baboo aka Stephen Black: as the Harry Nilsson of Snowdonia. A gifted songwriter not above lending his dulcet tones to the words of others – Black covers fellow Welsh singer Cate Le Bon on the album, a close friend for whom Black plays bass.

Rich with string-laden arrangements, with lyrics culled from personal experience and resonating with domesticity but imagination and wit too, The Boombox Ballads is Sweet Baboo’s sophisticated pop album: celebratory, a little melancholic, free of cynicism.

SWEET BABOO PLAYS THE RAINBOW BIRMINGHAM ON TUESDAY 22ND SEPTEMBER 2015. TICKETS ARE AVAILABLE HERE
