Former Fairground Attraction singer Eddi Reader is back with a new EP of covers alongside her original song Back The Dogs from her highly-acclaimed 2014 album Vagabond.

Recorded by Mark Freegard in Glasgow, Juxtaposed With U (Super Furry Animals) and Love Is A Losing Game (Amy Winehouse) feature Eddi singing and producing accompanied by Scottish songwriter (and husband) John Douglas of Trashcan Sinatras.

Also included on the new release are emotive versions of the Evans/Livingston standard Mona Lisa and Moon River, the latter produced by Boo Hewerdine and featuring Eddi with full orchestra. Moon River has played a central part in her concerts over the last couple of years.

Eddi is playing a show at Winchester Royal tomorrow, doors open 7.30pm and tickets are £23.50. Go to theatreroyalwinchester.co.uk
