Wildwood Kin have revealed their new single Never Alone, from their upcoming self-titled second album, and announced gigs including Manchester’s Night and Day.
The release marks a return for the family alt-folk trio after their 2017 debut album Turning Tides.
Wildwood Kin’s self-titled second album is due for release on 4 October via Silvertone Records/Sony.
Now lead single Never Alone has been revealed. The Fleetwood Mac-like folk rock ballad has been produced and co-written by Ed Harcourt. The track is a deeply personal song to the group and a message to anyone feeling isolated as Meg Loney’s brother did and sadly committed suicide.
Speaking about the track, Meg commented, “Because Ed’s so raw and heart-on-sleeve it wasn’t long before we were talking about shared experiences of mental health. We played some riffs and sang harmonies that had been knocking about for years and asked ourselves: how does this make us feel? It all came out from there. ‘Never Alone’ is about walking and loving someone through a dark place. We knew it had to be honest and hard hitting, but uplifting too.”
