New Release: Van William – Before I Found You

Van William has released the latest single from his forthcoming debut album Countries –out 19th January – entitled Before I Found You

The album opener is an outlier in a song cycle that deals mostly with heartache. Before I Found You heralds the euphoric beginning of a new relationship, a thematic contrast prefacing the diary of an end of a six-year relationship….

“Even though this record is at its core a break-up record, I wanted the first song to establish what was being lost,” says Van. “That initial spark and flame is the most powerful drug in the history of the planet, and like most drugs – it’s hard not to chase the first buzz. Even if you don’t feel particularly lost, that shit can make you feel found”

Van will follow the release of Countries supporting First Aid Kit on their European tour, arriving in the UK for 5 dates in late February and early March. Full UK listings as follows…
