10 Jan Kodaline start the new year with wistful new single, ’Wherever You Are’
New year, same old Kodaline — and for their many fans around the world, that isn’t a bad thing.
Fresh off a successful 2019, where the Irish pop-rock band played shows from Lollapalooza to a headlining show at the historic Roundhouse in London, Kodaline have entered this decade with a new single.
‘Wherever You Are’ is a preview of what’s to come. With their upcoming fourth album as-of-yet titled and without a release date, this serves as a nice teaser.
‘Wherever You Are’ is a self-reflective track that finds them recalibrating whilst dealing with life on the road.
“[The single] is about loved ones staying in your heart and mind even when they’re not with you,” says Garrigan. “I wrote it specifically for my girlfriend as due to being away on tour all the time, we never really get to see each other.”
‘Wherever You Are’ is the band at their most anthemic, and it’s familiar territory if you’ve followed the band since their 2013 debut album In A Perfect World.
But with the five-piece band releasing this single as a gesture of affection and being towards their loved ones, take this little sneak peek into the Kodaline of 2020 as a band reminding their fans they’re not going anywhere anytime soon.
Their upcoming album has yet to have a release date, nor any indication of a vinyl release — the band does have a good track record of releasing their albums on wax, so it’s highly likely we’ll see something physical when more details are firmed up. Listen to the exclusive interview below!
