In what immediately skyrocketed to my favourite news piece of the year/most anticipated album, Damien Rice announced a few short days ago that he's making his return with his first new album in eight years titled My Favourite Faded Fantasy. With the announcement he shared a two-minute clip of the song which was outstanding in every sense.

Today he's shared the full six-minute version of the song, which got its premiere a few short days ago on Zane Lowe's Radio 1 show. Faded Fantasy is out on 11 November via Warner Bros., and until then you'll find me wishing someone had just broken up with me so I could feel as heartbroken as they require.

Listen below.
