WATCH: King Charles 'Gamble For A Rose' for Secret Sessions

As the end of semester draws near I've just submitted my last two essays and now have one more exam to revise for. So much to do and so little time so I haven't found a moment to post on here for a week or so, but I had to take a break to share this beautiful video. 

Its King Charles performing his latest single, Gamble For A Rose, solo for the Secret Sessions. I saw him play a brilliant solo set that evening - as far as I can work out, they film a couple of sessions during the day and the bands play in an intimate location within London's The Hospital Club that night for a bunch of music fans, many of whom have no idea of the line-up in advance. 

I saw the mighty Mumford & Sons play at the O2 Arena on Thursday and Charles was supporting with his band - who put on a superb set to the biggest crowd I've seen them play to. It was my 10th time seeing King Charles live, crazy to think the first time was in the (then) 100 capacity Portland Arms in Cambridge, now a 20, 000 capacity arena! 

Here's to many more shows to come... a few of which fall in February as Charles is touring in support of his new album (of which the above track is the title track), all the details on the album and tour are here on his site.
