The Wandering Hearts achieved their second consecutive #1 on the UK’s official Country and Americana charts as they built upon the breakthrough success of 2018’s ‘Wild Silence’ debut with last summer’s self-titled second album. Arriving to a second wave of critical acclaim and again championed by Bob Harris at Radio 2, the album cemented the trio’s reputation as one of the leading lights of the British country / folk / Americana scenes – as underlined by their nomination for UK Album of the Year at the UK Americana Awards 2022, alongside Yola and The Staves. Now The Wandering Hearts make a great thing better as they share the Deluxe Edition of the album featuring the latest single ‘Instead Of You’. WATCH THE VIDEO HERE.

The Deluxe Edition adds ten previously unreleased songs to the original album’s tracklist. ‘Instead Of You’ and the live staple ‘Your Love Hurts’ are both songs that The Wandering Hearts adore, but neither found a fitting place within the context of the original album, but they have now both found their home on the Deluxe Edition.  Fuelled by larking about and a cheeky nightcap or two, ‘Carry On’ is a new song… of sorts. A reimagined take on the single ‘On Our Way’ that nods to The BeatlesJohn PrineBob Dylan and Arlo Guthrie, it’s the result of a high-spirited late night jam in The Wandering Hearts’ home studio.

The remainder of the Deluxe Edition features a personally curated selection of some of The Wandering Hearts’ finest live moments in support of the album. ‘Dreams’ and ‘Build A Fire’ were recorded live for Radio 2 for The Country Show with Bob Harris, while five songs were recorded at various dates of their sold-out 2021 UK acoustic tour.

The band explain, “We had so many songs to choose from when we put our self-titled album together so when we had the opportunity to record even more for the Deluxe Edition, we obviously jumped at the chance. It’s a tricky job trying to choose the right songs for the right place on the right album and that often means eliminating songs we’re really passionate about at the eleventh hour. Exciting as the recording process is, it’s quite hard coming to terms with the fact that the vision you have can’t always manifest in reality.”

 

‘The Wandering Hearts’ Deluxe Edition is released on signed CD and digital formats. LISTEN HERE
