Foy Vance’s First Album ‘Hope’ To Make Vinyl Debut
2022 marks the 15th anniversary of singer-songwriter Foy Vance’s 2007 full-length debut Hope. To celebrate the anniversary, the album will be available on vinyl for the very first time. The record is being reissued on double red vinyl with artwork from the original CD packaging, and will include two new acoustic versions of songs from the album. You can pre-order Hope here.
Vance says: “As this year marks the 15-year anniversary of my debut album Hope, we’ve decided to put together a special set that highlights both Hope and Signs of Life, alongside other favourites. Hope to see you there. Have I said Hope enough?”
The artist will also embark on an extensive European tour later this summer, with the UK dates commencing on 30 August at York Barbican and culminating on 9 September at Belfast SSE Arena, Vance’s first Arena show in his native Northern Ireland.
Vance recently collaborated with Rag’n’Bone Man on the single Sapling, a powerful new version of the opening track on Signs Of Life. The dup promoted the release with a soulful live performance of Sapling by Foy and Rag’n’Bone Man filmed at Vance’s Pilgrim Studio in Aberfeldy in Highland Perthshire.
The follow-up to 2016’s critically acclaimed The Wild Swan, Signs Of Life is Vance’s fourth studio album and second on Ed Sheeran’s Gingerbread Man Records. Hailing from Bangor in Northern Ireland, Vance has headlined globally to sell-out crowds and splits his time between London and the Scottish Highlands with his family.
