Ordinary Heroes

Ordinary Heroes is the ninth studio album by the British Pop musician Howard Jones, released on 9 November 2009. [1][2] A simpler album production than the previous release Revolution of the Heart was present here. Strings and piano dominate, and while there are some upbeat tracks, the album has a mellow, mature atmosphere. Some of the tracks were performed with the Morrison Orpheus Choir in St David's Hall in Cardiff at a special one off gig.
