Orlando Weeks celebrates the birth of his son with debut solo single, 'Safe In Sound'

Orlando Weeks has shared his debut solo single, 'Safe In Sound'.

The track was penned in 2018 as Orlando and his partner anticipated the birth of their son. “I was witness to this momentous event in our lives and didn’t want that to go unmarked in the work that I do," he explains. "I found that writing was a way to anchor moments and cement feelings that we were sharing.

"Throughout that dazzling year, with its steady march towards our son’s arrival, I felt grateful to the discipline of working on music for the semblance of structure that it gave me. Musically I wanted to make something that stretched me, something with beauty and intensity.”

It's a taster from the former Maccabees footman's upcoming debut album, which will follow sometime this year - his first project since he wrote, illustrated and soundtracked alternative festive tale, The Gritterman.

Give 'Safe In Sound' a listen below, and keep an eye out for more news soon. He'll tour the UK in March.
