Never Know is a taste of their upcoming new album Restless Minds.
Rising UK stars Ward Thomas have released their jubilant new single Never Know, taken from their eagerly anticipated forthcoming album Restless Minds out 1 February on WTW Music/Sony Music. The girls will also tour the UK in the new year.
Written by Ward Thomas alongside Rebekah Powell and Jessica Sharman (who also co-wrote recent single Lie Like Me) and produced by Joe Rubel (Ed Sheeran, Tom Grennan), Never Know, is an empowering, arms-aloft pop anthem that they call their ‘ranty song’ and if you listen carefully, secretly features a reversed sample of a dog growl!
“Never Know is a song we have always wanted to write” say the girls; “It’s for anyone who has been rejected in a friendship, relationship or in work. But out of that rejection comes empowerment and a sense of freedom and release which gives you the courage to do what you believe in and be yourself.”
Lyrically the twins have tackled issues close to their hearts on Restless Minds, including pertinent observations on social media, the women’s movement, what ‘the truth’ means in 2018 and mental health. “We couldn’t help but address social media and the subconscious competition it creates,” says Lizzy. “There’s a fake reality that everyone our age is falling for right now. Scroll down, see my page, look at my perfect life!”
Restless Minds is the follow up to their 2016 No.1 charting major label debut Cartwheels and firmly establishes Ward Thomas as leading exponents of new wave country tinged pop.
