Bristol based duo Foreign Affairs have released a new track titled The Hope Comes Again, which premiered on Bob Harris’ BBC Radio 2 country show on October 29. You can listen to the song here.
The pair – made up of brothers Lawrence and Adam Purnell – wrote, recorded and produced the single, which is a very honest affair and very much documents the uncertain times that we currently find ourselves in.
Speaking about the song, the duo elaborated on the entire songwriting process and also explained the unique way in which the song takes its meaning from.
“The song was written about me, from someone who can feel sadness but who is lucky enough to be able to see the positive in a person or situation, I can always see the hope,” Lawrence said.
“The whole process of writing, producing and recording the song was very organic, carried out at home in Bristol,” Adam added. “It felt comfortable and the best environment for this song.”
Foreign Affairs continue to rise in profile and win admirers, with the pair’s heavier take on Americana music really standing out. Last year, they signed a publishing deal with Peer Music, which will allow them to release their music all over the world.
