(2017)

Woodland Echoes is the seventh solo album by English singer-songwriter Nick Heyward. It was released on 4 August 2017 on Gladsome Hawk Records. He has described it as accidentally biographical and influenced by "love, nature, togetherness, ‘70s’ pop, America, open spaces and afternoon tea".[2]

Singles

The first single is a double A-side with the songs 'Baby Blue Sky' and 'Mountaintop' and was released on 30 June 2017.[1] The world premier for the video for 'Baby Blue Sky' was exclusively premiered by Music-News.com on 18 July 2017.[3]

The second single, 'Perfect Sunday Sun', was premiered by Billboard on 31 Oct 2017.[4] Heyward describes the song as, "my interpretation of indecision, idealism and havering – a kind of trilogy, like Krzysztof Kieślowski’s Three Colours film series".[5] "It starts off in Richmond, goes to Bedford Falls in It’s A Wonderful Life, to San Francisco to Hitchcock".[4]

'The Stars', described by Mojo magazine as a top 10 single and the best track on the album,[6] was announced as the third single in conjunction with Record Store Day UK on 6 March 2018.[7] It will be available on 10" vinyl with an exclusive b-side, 'Everyone & Everything'.[8]

Rated at 82 in Metacritic's Best Albums of 2017,[9] it's described as a "tonic for life",[14] "an aural injection of Vitamin D"[11] and a "fine collection of tuneful guitar pop",[12] the album's pastoral sound[17] and unmistakable Englishness[6] has garnered comparisons to Lennon and McCarney,[15] Paul Weller[11] and Teenage Fanclub.[17]
