Singer-songwriter Adam French has released his new single ‘Wanna Be Here’. Adam French is a self-taught multi-instrumentalist from Cheshire who creates songs of depth, and honesty. Following two EP releases – the past 18 months has seen French embark on a new UK headline tour, including selling out London’s Omeara in May and playing shows with some of the most exciting talent coming out of the country – Nilüfer Yanya, Jade Bird, Jacob Banks and Freya Ridings – as well as an accelerated introduction to the festival circuit playing Reading & Leeds, The Great Escape, Latitude, Festival #6 and Reeperbahn to name a few.
‘Wanna Be Here’ is the first release from his debut album, scheduled for release in 2019. This delicate and emotive number softly matures from its raw icy verses, flowing beautifully into its catchy chorus and subtly powerful crescendo. Biting guitars create a breezy ethereal soundscape as they float and soar over the punchy gripping drum beat while French’s raspy warm vocals flood the track with tender passion. Both warm and cold this track is presented with a fluidity that seeps sweetly into the ears and soothes as backing vocals lull behind the absorbing soundscape. With a delicate interior the song swirls beneath its bitter exterior of acute guitars and intense almost cinematic soundscapes. It’s a powerful track filled with oodles of tear jerking emotion as French displays his mature organic musicianship that is destined to touch the hearts of all who listen.
Speaking on the track, French states: “‘Wanna Be Here’ is a song about the difference between happiness and comfort. As people we often mistake a comfortable habitat for love and settle for the now. It’s important to share life with somebody that makes you happy and brings out the best in you… and it’s never too late to cut loose from those who don’t.”
