Villagers return with new single 'Summer's Song'

After the release of their brilliant 2018 album 'The Art Of Pretending To Swim', Villagers have now returned with a brand new single.

The new track 'Summer's Song' was written and produced by the band's frontman Conor O’Brien and mixed by the legendary Dave Fridmann, and is available to download now through Domino Recordings.

Speaking about his return, O'Brien said, “Summer's Song is the closest I'll ever get to writing a pure pop song. I just had to roll with it and I'm glad I did; it was really just an excuse to make the horns sound like sunbeams. Boy it's fun to play live. I can't quite believe we managed to get the magical touch of Dave Fridmann in on the mix”.
