The Boy Least Likely To have just posted a new track ‘Follow Your Heart Somewhere’ - the first to emerge from their fifth album which is due in Autumn.
Listen to‘Follow Your Heart Somewhere’ below.
Speaking about the song, the band say: “It’s about getting older and coming to terms with the way your life has turned out, the things you wished you’d done but haven’t and the things you wished you hadn’t done but did. It’s about growing apart from someone you’ve been with for a long time and looking back on the way you were when you started out, wondering where it all went wrong and what’s going to happen next.”
