Paul Draper has announced a four-track EP which will feature new versions and acoustic recordings of tracks from his 2017 solo album Spooky Action.

Titled EP Three, it’ll arrive on March 16 via Kscope and will feature a single version and acoustic take on Jealousy Is A Powerful Emotion along with a new version of Things People Want. Also included is Public Service Broadcasting’s remix of Friends Make The Worst Enemies.

EP Three is now available for pre-order, with the former Mansun man marking the announcement with a lyric video for the single version of Jealousy Is A Powerful Emotion.

Later this week, on February 16, Draper will release a special edition of Spooky Action which will feature the original album alongside a disc capturing his headline show at London’s Scala from September 21 last year.
