Fergus releases new single ‘Willow’

Released September 6th, the Jake Gosling (Ed Sheeran, Lady Gaga, The Libertines) produced Willow marks the third release from London singer songwriter Fergus. Following previous singles You or Nothing and Shrinking, Willow‘s delicate vocal carries a beguiling guitar hook that slowly draws you into an Eden of stratified harmonies.

Speaking about the single, Fergus said:

“This one started out as a poem set to music really – a lullaby, after close friends had a baby girl called Willow! I wanted to paint a beautiful, peaceful image lyrically, inspired by this new life, a new beginning, and voyage into the unknown. The message is, that fundamentally, everything is going to be ok – “don’t weep for me, Willow”. It’s as much a message to me, as it is to her and makes an uplifting (and welcome!) contrast to the first two songs.”

Spending his is formative years singing and touring professionally with choirs and playing cello with orchestras. Fergus eventually found himself burnt out. After a few years of reflection, solid songwriting and discovering his own sound, Fergus is launching his solo career with the Purple Road EP which is due for release in the autumn on Goldun Egg Records. With a new video directed by filmmaker Jasper Cable-Alexander (Rankin Photography), the film is the first instalment of a two-part story which begins in childhood. Jasper said about the video:

“This film came from the heart. Being brought up in the countryside I’ve always loved seeing nature on film. When I heard FERGUS’ song, I thought it was so soft and stunning and the visuals needed to reflect that, so we used super 8mm which worked perfectly. Fergus and I worked closely on the actions and the way we could create the story. It was such a fun shoot…. the other interesting element to the film is that it doesn’t end there. It’s a two-part story and I’m excited to see the second one come together.”
