Embrace announce new track Wake Up Call and 2018 UK tour


Story by Jack Foley

EMBRACE have announced a new track, Wake Up Call, and UK tour dates for 2018.

The new single follows recent release The Finish Line, with both being taken from their forthcoming new album Love Is A Basic Need, released on March 9, 2018 through Cooking Vinyl.

Available as an instant grat download with pre-orders of the new album, Wake Up Call is described as an anthemic and powerful song opening with impactful strings, keys and guitars before launching into emotive and heartfelt vocals.

Danny McNamara commented: “Wake Up Call is about realising you’re in a toxic relationship and finding the strength to move on. It’s hard leaving someone who’s come to feel like a part of you. Settling down is ok but life’s too short to settle for. It’s got one of my favourite lyrics from the whole album in it – ‘the summers not over, its only begun, but it feels like October, now you’re not around’.”

Following recent stadium support dates with Coldplay, plus establishing and performing at their own award-winning secret festival, the band recently performed a short run of intimate shows, where they previewed songs from the album.
