To celebrate the release of his sterling new single, "When You're Here", Albin Lee Meldau runs us through ten of his top broken-hearted blues tracks.

"I’m So Lonesome I Could Cry" by Hank Williams

Amazing song and so simple. Timeless.

"How Can You Mend a Broken Heart" by Al Green

Here’s another gem written by the amazing Bee Gees. Sung by the sexiest man alive.

"Save the Last Dance for Me" by Jerry Lee Lewis

A story written by a man in a wheelchair on his wedding night. And also my father’s idol the killer.

"Rock ’n’ Roll Suicide" by David Bowie

Can’t have a list without Bowie. It’s also my favourite lyric. “Time takes a cigarette, puts it in your mouth.“ Now that’s an introduction.

"Love Hurts" by Gram Parsons

Emmy-Lou and Gram. Love defined. No words needed.

"To Know Him Is To Love Him" by Dolly Parton, Linda Ronstadt and Emmy Lou Harris.

Written by Phil Spector and performed by three sirens. GOD BLESS AMERICA.

Black is the Colour by Christy Moore

Old Scottish song sung by Ireland's finest.

"Sun is Shining" by Bob Marley

Fuck me it’s amazing.

"Are You My Woman (Tell Me So)" by The Chi-Lites

Original rhythm that just makes me smile. I do enjoy a good baritone.
