the release of their critically acclaimed a cappella album ‘Rant’, The Futureheads have announced the release of their new single ‘Beeswing’ on 18th June. It is an interesting choice of track, one which they mange to do extreamly well, Ross Millard says “Beeswing was one of my choices for the record, saw Thompson do it on Jools Holland and thought it was an amazing song. When you’re doing a cappella you’re a lot more exposed when you perform, and the lyrics become really important. So we went for songs that have something to say, that took you on a journey. Some of The Futureheads’ lyrics have narratives, but most of them are oblique and syncopated and staccato and minimal. So the folk songs we’ve chosen are the opposite to that.”
