Song premiere: "Bees Made Honey in the Lion's Head" by Daphne Lee Martin

Daphne Lee Martin
9 September 2015

Fall On Your Sword is the fourth full-length album from Daphne Lee Martin, and the first to be produced by the songwriter herself. According to Martin, this collection of songs was written as a whole, “encompassing memories of fables, fairy tales, Bible stories, mythology, poetry, cautionary tales, traditional folk songs, and American popular culture of the 20th century.”

The result is rich, compelling, and funky, as this track, featuring rapper SuaveSki, ably demonstrates. Turn it up!

Fall On Your Sword comes out October 2, via The Telegraph Recording Company.
