Young Fathers Get Spiritual On ‘Lord’

When you’re asking for a sign, sometimes it’s only the ‘Lord’ who knows and answers the call.

Returning with the announcement of their forthcoming 3rd album a new single ‘Lord’ it’s a first chance to get reacquainted with the 2014 Mercury Music winning Young Fathers. Having been on somewhat of a hiatus the Edinburgh trio have returned having finished their album in a seemingly peaceful state of mind and are now adding something spiritual to the mix.

It’s a kaleidoscope of soul chorus and analogue bass synth delivered as a ballad that deals with the question of timing. ‘Lord’ plays with expansive choral harmonies as the lyrics deal with accountability, redemption and the need for great art in hard times.

Young Fathers have also announced a run of UK headline shows for 2018 and tickets go on sale Friday 3rd November with more details here.
