WHAT IS IT ABOUT?
Wisdom, Laughter and Lines is the new album from Paul Heaton and Jacqui Abbott. This record is the second from Paul and Jacqui following the critically acclaimed What Have We Become, which saw them return together on record for the first time since the multi-million selling days of The Beautiful South, who in the 1990s and early 2000s released a string of records. Wisdom, Laughter and Lines is a wonderful contemporary record, full of lyrical wit and humour, whilst retaining a strong social conscience that touches on the changing social landscape of Britain. The first single from the album is The Austerity of Love, which was Record of the Week on BBC Radio 2 and has been added straight on to its A Playlist.
