Sweet Baboo release fifth album The Boombox Ballads

Sweet Baboo (aka Stephen Black) releases his fifth album, The Boombox Ballads, this Friday August 14th on Moshi Moshi Records.

Black has become the alt-hero of the Welsh pop scene, writing sparkling melodies with a gift for a deft lyrical turn. The album is the follow up to Welsh Music Prize nominated ‘I’m a Dancer/Songs About Sleeping’.

Following a sold out London show in May and a handful of summer festivals, including the forthcoming sold out Green Man Festival, Black will embark on a full-band UK headline tour in September. The tour kicks off in Leeds on September 16th and culminates in a show at Cardiff’s Globe on the 3rd of October.  All tour dates and ticket info here.


On release day, August 14th, Black plays a free solo, acoustic show at Rough Trade East, London.

Watch the video for ‘You Got Me Timekeeping‘. Listen to an advance stream of the album here.
