Sarah Darling has release a brand new single in the shape of Divide, which features the vocals of UK CMA Award winning duo Ward Thomas. You can listen to the song here.
The single lands just under two weeks before Darling’s Union Chapel gig in London, which will see the American artist rattle through her greatest hits, some Christmas favourites and bring a number of special guests on stage with her at various different parts of the set.
Speaking about the song, Darling explained that the inspiration came to her when she was hiking at the Rocky Mountain National Park with her husband, which then led to her piecing together how the song would sound and the harmonies that she would require.
“As I was standing at the continental divide, I felt something come over me,” Darling said.  “I realised that I was standing at the highest elevation and that would determine which direction water would run down the mountain.  It would divide and go its separate ways to the ocean.
“I started to think of relationships in my own life, the way the world is and it felt like such a beautiful metaphor for how life works. Sometimes people or situations come into your life and you have to let them go. Other times, you see that person down the road, and you realise that time worked all things out.  So many things in life divide to come back together again.
“I got the idea of asking Ward Thomas to join in once I heard the harmonies really syncing. This song has this interesting chant which I’ve never written before. It felt like it needed a group of angels, so I asked my dear friends Ward Thomas to join in.”
In addition to the gig, Sarah Darling is also set to release her ‘Campfire Sessions’ acoustic album in the near future, while guests Ward Thomas are to embark on a UK tour next year.
