Snow Patrol Announce Details of Brand New EP

Snow Patrol have announced details of a brand-new EP. Written and recorded during lockdown, ‘The Fireside Sessions’ will be released on 21st August and is made up of five songs written with the band’s fans during a series of streams on Instagram Live dubbed ‘Saturday Songwriters’. In a nod to this collaboration, ‘The Fireside Sessions’ will be released under the banner of Snow Patrol And The Saturday Songwriters. The EP was produced by Iain Archer. It will be released digitally and on CD and was preceded by the single ‘Reaching Out To You’ on 30th July.

The band are partnering with the Trussell Trust Charity in the UK for the EP and all proceeds from the project will go to the anti-poverty charity. Speaking about how ‘The Fireside Sessions’ came about, frontman Gary Lightbody says, “During lockdown I wrote a song each Saturday on Instagram Live. People from all over the world participated and each week there was 4 or 5 thousand people involved over the course of the hour: The Saturday Songwriters. They would suggest chords and lyrics and I would put them all together and add in a few of my own where appropriate but my unwritten rule was that there would be lyrics from a Saturday Songwriter in each line of the song. We did it for 11 weeks and wrote 12 songs together. It was a lot of fun.”

Completing the EP’s tracklisting alongside ‘Reaching Out To You’ are ‘On The Edge Of All This’, ‘The Curve Of Earth’, ‘Dance With Me’ and ‘Light Years’. The Fireside Sessions follow’s last year’s ‘Reworked’ album, which saw the quintet offer up alternate versions of iconic tracks alongside some deep cuts. ‘Reworked’ reached Number 3 in the UK charts.
