Bellowhead Run for the Bright Lights

Bellowhead are releasing a single as a prelude to the folk big band's latest UK tour.

‘Let Her Run / I Want To See The Bright Lights Tonight’ is the new double A side single from Britain’s "most successful ever traditional folk act".

Ten-years-old this year, Bellowhead released their new album ‘Revival’ earlier this summer. It entered the charts at No 12 and was the band’s highest album chart position to date.

‘Let Her Run’ is areworked adaptation from the hauling shanty Let The Bulgine Run, while ‘I Want To See The Bright Lights Tonight’ is a cover of the Richard & Linda Thompson classic which was itself released in 1974. 


Vocalist Jon Boden said: "I’d done half an arrangement anyway, then we’re sitting in the Island Records boardroom and there is a reproduction of the Bright Lights single cover on the wall and it just felt like the perfect choice".
