Francis Lung has announced details of his brand new album, ‘Miracle’.
Set to arrive on 18th June via Memphis Industries, the former WU-LYF man’s second full-length was produced in collaboration with Brendan Williams (Dutch Uncles, Matthew Halsall, Kiran Leonard) and Robin Koob (who co-arranged and performed strings), recorded at Giant Wafer studios in rural Wales in early 2020, and finished from his home studio.
“For me, [Miracle] is about the struggle between my self-destructive side and my problem-solving, constructive side,” says Francis. “I suppose through a lot of these songs I’m dealing with these emotional problems, acknowledging the negative aspects of my behaviour instead of burying them, and providing an alternative point of view for myself”
“I don’t want to be defined by my anxiety, my depression or any history of substance abuse,” he continues, “but I do want to reach out to other people who have had similar experiences, especially if it’s in a way that helps them feel a little better. To me, this music is celebrating healing as much as it focuses on the darker sides of the human psyche.”
The record is previewed by a brand new single, ‘Bad Hair Day, which you can check out in the video below.
