The Wandering Hearts Share New Single “Instead Of You”



Wandering Hearts

The Wandering Hearts have announced a Deluxe Edition of their self-titled album, set for release on May 13th. Alongside the announcement, the band have shared a brand new single, ‘Instead Of You.’ Listen HERE.

Whereas the original album celebrated the power of connection and the unbroken human spirit, ‘Instead of You’ possesses the empowerment to know that sometimes breaking away is for the best. The song was recorded in Connecticut with the Grammy Award-winning producer Peter Katis (The National).

“‘Instead Of You’ is dreamy but determined. Sometimes, anything is preferable to feeling equally trapped between staying or leaving, but you just know you have to get out for your own good. With echoes of our ‘60s and ‘70s influences, the song’s psychedelic folk-rock sound tells its own story of freedom.”

The Deluxe Edition adds ten previously unreleased songs to the original album’s tracklist, as well as a personally curated selection of some of The Wandering Hearts’ finest live moments in support of the album. ‘Dreams’ and ‘Build A Fire’ were recorded live for Radio 2 for The Country Show with Bob Harris, while five songs were recorded at various dates of their sold-out 2021 UK acoustic tour.  

The band added, “We had so many songs to choose from when we put our self-titled album together so when we had the opportunity to record even more for the Deluxe Edition, we obviously jumped at the chance. It’s a tricky job trying to choose the right songs for the right place on the right album and that often means eliminating songs we’re really passionate about at the eleventh hour. Exciting as the recording process is, it’s quite hard coming to terms with the fact that the vision you have can’t always manifest in reality.”

‘The Wandering Hearts’ Deluxe Edition will be released on signed CD and digital formats, and is available to pre-order / pre-save HERE.
