With his new album Wild Imagination out now on Moshi Moshi, Sweet Baboo has shared new single ‘Pink Rainbow’; a frisky hit of funk-pop psychedelia – Arthur Russell meets Robert Wyatt.

Sweet Baboo AKA Stephen Black says of the single, “I love everything about it; it’s so over the top. From the backing vocals to the title to Paul’s ostentatious keyboard solo. The lyrics are ridiculous too. My son’s favourite song at the time was Rainbow Connection by Kermit the Frog. His favourite colour was pink. I thought that was as good a start as any for a song. The world can be a pretty dreary place so you may as well step out onto a pink rainbow.”

He adds, “Credit must be given to [Lancaster garage-pop spouses] The Lovely Eggs’s son Arlo, who pretty much wrote the lyrics to the second verse after explaining a documentary about the Flying Scotsman to me.
