“Richly textured [mixing] grandeur with grit…magnificent” – Sunday Times Culture
Oxford-based singer-songwriter Lewis Watson has unveiled the video for his new single ‘forever’ taken from his upcoming second album midnight, out March 24th through Cooking Vinyl. The single is a stunning yet gentle, laid back anthem with reflective lyrics coupled with beautiful three-part harmonies.
The video powerfully documents the ups and downs of a modern relationship, following the early acute feelings of love and passion, through the gradual breakdown of communication, to the subsequent parting of ways, which is where the video comes to a head.
On Lewis’ new album midnight, he has developed his much-loved acoustic-pop sound into something altogether more ambitious. Drawing upon inspiration from a disparate range of influences including Death Cab For Cutie, Coldplay and Bon Iver, the album expands Lewis Watson’s musical world far beyond his debut.
Lewis will embark on a headline tour from March in support of the album. The run of dates will also include UK festival appearances at Live At Leeds and 2Q Festival, as well as a slot on this year’s SXSW line-up in the US. Full tour dates are as follows:
