Released in June, Far From Saints’ self-titled album became one of the most critically acclaimed debuts of the year and immediately made a major chart impact, landing at #5 on the Official UK Album Chart and racing straight to #1 on the UK Country and Americana charts. Uniquely fusing elements of country, rock, folk, soul and Americana, previous singles Let’s Turn This Back Around & Screaming Hallelujah have also received significant national radio support. Four months on, and about to embark on their biggest UK & Ireland headline tour to date, culminating at Cardiff’s Utilita Arena, the band now release the brand-new track The Weather Left To Go.

Written and recorded this summer during live rehearsals, The Weather Left To Go shows that the creative spark that ignited the album continues to burn bright. Opening with layered guitars melodies of Dwight Baker and Stereophonics frontman Kelly Jones, the song takes flight as Kelly Jones and Patty Lynn’s vocal harmonies rise in unison while vibrant instrumentation finds the sweet spot between laidback serenity and soulful folk rock. Its lyrics use the changing of the seasons as an uplifting metaphor for life’s rich tapestry, and how a more positive future emerges just when you least expect it.
Patty says: “It was fun to record this new track, and I’m excited to play it on the fall tour, something new for those who have already worn out the album.” Watch the visualiser for the new tune below:
