So we hope you all had a jolly weekend, and helping to ease you into the week we have this lovely little number. It's from a Manchester-based chap known as Laurie Hulme, better known as Songs For Walter.

He’s keeping to his promise to give away a new song each month up to the release of a full album debut – due over the next couple of months. And in case you were wondering about who Walter might be, well, it was Laurie’s great grandfather. Many of his songs are about his grandparents in which he depicts everything from caravan holidays to the tale of their first date to the Empire theatre. He’s also one to watch out for as he’s been long-listed for the Glastonbury Emerging Talent Competition 2013.
