Ward Thomas New Single ‘Never Know’ Announce 15 Date UK Tour New Album ‘Restless Minds’ Out February 1st

05/10/2018

Rising UK stars Ward Thomas (24 year old twin sisters Catherine and Lizzy), release their jubilant new single ‘Never Know’(available on all platforms from today), taken from their eagerly anticipated forthcoming album ‘Restless Minds’ out February 1st on WTW Music/Sony Music. The girls will also tour the UK in the new year.

 

Written by Ward Thomas alongside Rebekah Powell and Jessica Sharman (who also co-wrote recent single ‘Lie Like Me’) and produced by Joe Rubel (Ed Sheeran, Tom Grennan), ‘Never Know’, is a empowering, arms-aloft pop anthem that they call their ‘ranty song’ and if you listen carefully, secretly features a reversed sample of a dog growl!

 

“Never Know” is a song we have always wanted to write” say the girls; “It’s for anyone who has been rejected in a friendship, relationship or in work. But out of that rejection comes empowerment and a sense of freedom and release which gives you the courage to do what you believe in and be yourself.”

 

Ward Thomas play the following UK dates with tickets on sale at 9am Friday 12th October. Fans who pre-order the album by 3pm on Tuesday, 9th October, will be granted access to a special pre-sale starting at 9am on Wednesday 10th October. For more info visit www.wardthomasmusic.com
