Ward Thomas are back with the first taste of new music from their forthcoming studio album Invitation – out October 2nd.
Take a listen to ‘Sweet Time’ below…
Largely produced by Jonathan Quarmby (Lewis Capaldi, Tom Walker, Finley Quaye), and mostly recorded in lockdown from their Hampshire cottage, Invitation is a coaxing doorway for all into an exciting new chapter as the fog of a global pandemic begins to lift.
Charlotte and Lizzy say; “2020 has been a year full of learning, which we feel has changed our approach to this album. We recorded a lot of it from our cottage, and working remotely came with its share of challenges, but also new opportunities. Although recorded during uncertain times, the record feels like an invitation to a more positive time; to a more open and exciting new chapter. We named it after a lyric in the song ‘Open Your Mind’ because the album feels like an invitation – whether it be figuratively, an invitation to self-reflect, or physically, to a time when we can all party again.”
The girls will also embark on an intimate Invitation acoustic tour, which was rescheduled due to Covid-19, for April next year. The 16-date run will include two dates at London’s Union Chapel on the 26th & 27th.
