Watch: Ben Howard - "Esmerelda"

"Esmerelda" is the lead track (and new video) from The Burgh Island EP, four new songs by one of the brightest lights (and most successful entries) on the British singer/songwriter front: Ben Howard. Debut album Every Kingdom, released last fall in the U.K. and in 2012 stateside, has made some nice inroads in the U.S. with some decent airplay, online buzz and TV appearances (like last month's Jimmy Kimmel performance). Howard's signature intricate finger-picking guitar style gets a bit of a workout here as it does on other songs and you can hear a bit more from the "in the studio" EPK teaser video after the jump below.
