Kodaline is prepping up for a big 2020 by dropping their brand new single ‘Wherever You Are’. The track is the first taste of their eagerly anticipated fourth album, which will be released later this year.
‘Wherever You Are’ finds the band embracing the emotion-packed and immediately anthemic songwriting that has become a hallmark of their biggest hits.
Opening with Steve Garrigan’s expressive topline backed by little more than swirling vocal harmonies, Kodaline gradually builds up the production before the track erupts into a dramatic denouement. The track was produced and written by the band themselves.
‘Wherever You Are’ is already emerging as a fan favorite, having been played at numerous Kodaline shows last year. It was a fitting way to introduce a song that reflects the band’s experiences on the road.
‘Wherever You Are’ is about loved ones staying in your heart and mind even when they’re not with you,” says Garrigan. “I wrote it specifically for my girlfriend as due to being away on tour all the time, we never really get to see each other.’
Their first release since the 2018 album ‘Politics of Living’, ‘Wherever You Are’ introduces a new chapter in the band’s phenomenally successful career. You can stream the single below.
