Taken from their forthcoming EP The Space Between.
One of the UK’s finest young acts, Ward Thomas, have revealed their stunning new track Painted Legacy, the twins first new music since their duet with James Blunt earlier this year. Ward Thomas have also released the rescheduled dates for their intimate Unfiltered acoustic tour, which was postponed due to Covid-19. They will now head out on the 16-date run in September, including two dates at London’s Union Chapel on the 18 and 19 September.
Produced by Oskar Winberg (Shawn Mendes, Paloma Faith), Painted Legacy is beautifully moving, showcasing the girls’ effortless harmonies, and further pushing the development of maturity within their lyrics and sound.
Speaking of the track Lizzy said, “We wrote this song after our uncle passed away in the summer. It’s written from the perspective of his children carrying on his legacy.” She continues, “He was writing a book all about legacy before he died and the legacy he left behind was being a Father, a Grandfather, a husband and a friend to many.”
The track is the first to be taken from their forthcoming EP The Space Between. Speaking of the EP, which was written and recorded between London, Hampshire and Nashville, Lizzy said, “this EP is all about togetherness. Holding space for someone, reaching out to help, or just being present and there with someone through a difficult time.”
