Fold had hinted at a new release earlier this year and as promised a new EP is on the way. The Leeds based quartet announced the release of Written In The Sky, a four-track EP due on September 22nd. The EP follows their 2015 self-titled album which was one of our Picks of the Year then and remains a favourite.
Known for their commitment and engagement in social justice causes, themes of equality and unity continue to be reflected and central to their music. As with previous efforts, on the upcoming EP Fold used vocal samples from historical speeches to convey their messages, including Lorraine Hansberry and Fred Hampton. In addition to the vocal samples, Written In The Sky features live singing for the first time, with the band enlisting several guests on vocal duties.
Fold are teasing the EP with the title track and we can’t stop listening to it. Stream it below and pre-order Written In The Sky on their bandcamp.
