Ward Thomas Share ‘Music In The Madness’, Announce Tour
Ward Thomas have shared Music In The Madness, the title track of their upcoming album. The single is the second advance from their fifth studio album – out 10 March 2023.
Produced by Ed Harcourt and mixed by Dan Grech (Halsey, Lana Del Ray, Liam Gallagher) Music In The Madness is a euphoric call to arms and sees the duo seek solace in hope and is a powerful reminder of how wonderful the world can be.
“Music In The Madness is our way of making sense of the world as it is,” the duo said of the track. “The world is ever changing and things seem to happen at increasing speed that can quickly become overwhelming. We are often surrounded by negative news or sad stories; but when you take a step back, you’re able to see all the love and joy that also exists.” Listen to Music In The Madness below.
The duo’s fifth album is both a harmony-soaked balm for shattered souls and an uplifting reminder of what really matters. Love, family, unity and the healing power of music are recurrent themes on an album begun as war broke out in Ukraine and the world went into a post-Covid tailspin.
“In Ukraine in particular we witnessed these wonderful, moving moments of music in the madness,” says Catherine. “Soldiers singing the national anthem and getting married on the front line. The viral video of the girl in a bomb shelter singing Let It Go. In times of crisis, music matters even more. That’s what we set out to celebrate.”
Ward Thomas will hit the road in March and April next year for the following headline dates. Tickets are on sale here.
