Ward Thomas have announced a UK tour for early 2019 including a Manchester gig at the Albert Hall. The announcement comes as the duo release their new single Never Know from their upcoming album Restless Minds.
Never Know was written by Catherine and Lizzy Ward Thomas alongside Rebekah Powell and Jessica Sharman who also co-wrote recent single Lie Like Me. The single was produced by Joe Rubel and described by the twins as their ‘ranty song’.
Featuring a reversed sample of a dog’s growl, Never Know is an empowering, arms in the air pop anthem.
Speaking about the single, Ward Thomas commented, “Never Know is a song we have always wanted to write. It’s for anyone who has been rejected in a friendship, relationship or in work. But out of that rejection comes empowerment and a sense of freedom and release which gives you the courage to do what you believe in and be yourself.”
To celebrate the single and the upcoming album (due for release on 1 February), Ward Thomas have announced a fourteen date UK tour. Catherine and Lizzy will also feature in the forthcoming BBC Radio 1 documentary “Beyond Nashville”, presented by Scott Mills, exploring Country Music’s extraordinary success in the UK charts this year.
