Just in time for Valentine's Day, Epiphone Masterbilt Century
champion and songwriting legend Billy Bragg has released a new book, A Lover Sings
, featuring selected lyrics drawn from his nearly 40-year long career. The book also includes personal notes on all the songs, their origins, and even lyrics that didn’t make the final version.
“I like to think my personal songs are just as powerful as my polemics and long ago stopped worrying about striking a balance between the two," said Bragg. "Whether you’re lovelorn or radical, I’m just trying to help you make sense of the world, because that’s why my favorite songs did for me.”
