Ward Thomas plus The Wandering Hearts
Rising UK stars Ward Thomas (24 year-old twin sisters Catherine and Lizzy), have announced a UK tour to tie in with the release of their jubilant new single ‘Never Know’, taken from their eagerly anticipated forthcoming album ‘Restless Minds’ (the follow-up to 2016’s chart-topping ‘Cartwheels’).
The twins have been synonymous with the growth of country music in the UK, being the first British country act to ever hit no.1 in the UK album charts.
In their new album, lyrically they have tackled issues close to their hearts on ‘Restless Minds’, including pertinent observations on social media, the women’s movement 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!”
Catherine and Lizzy will also feature in the forthcoming BBC Radio 1 documentary ‘Beyond Nashville’, presented by Scott Mills, exploring Country Music’s extraordinary success in the UK charts this year. The documentary explores how the genre has changed and grown on both sides of the pond. Along the way Scott speaks to some of the biggest artists on today’s scene including Ward Thomas. ‘Beyond Nashville’ will be out on BBC Radio1’s iPlayer channel on 19 October and also on BBC red button.
