Westerman has shared the title-track from his upcoming debut album.

'Your Hero Is Not Dead' is due for release on 5th June 2020 via Play It Again Sam, alongside a show at London's Hoxton Hall on 20th August (postponed from June).

"This was the last song I wrote for the whole record," he says, "but I had the title for the album before any of the music was formed. I remember I wrote it on the day that Mark Hollis died. He's probably as close to a musical hero as I have. The song isn't about him or Talk Talk necessarily, but when he died I wanted to put myself to task and respond to the sadness I was feeling at that moment."

Give 'Your Hero Is Not Dead' a listen below.
