Maplewood is an EP by Ed Harcourt.[1] It was released in 2000.[2] Harcourt recorded the album on a four-track in his grandma's Sussex house, and it was originally intended as a demo. Upon signing the artist to a record contract, Heavenly Records decided to make it his first solo release. The Guardian described it as "a bedroom-produced gem".[3] Some of the songs were later re-recorded during the sessions for Here Be Monsters. The track "He's Building a Swamp" features Hadrian Garrard on trumpet.[4] Harcourt would later describe the release as "the precocious youngest child record. The one everybody loved dearly and still thinks of very fondly, but it's still full of arrogance".[5]
