Gruff Rhys Announces new track “Silver Lining Lead Balloons”

Gruff Rhys is pleased to announce the second track from his new album “Silver Lining Lead Balloons” taken from his 25th Album “Sadness Sets Me Free” which is released by Rough Trade Records on 26.01.2024. Gruff says about his new track: “Its about facing reality and not trying to overstate something that isn’t all that. But it’s deadpan. I’m not being totally serious. At the end I’m singing “I left my dreams in a rental car”, which is quite a pathetic image, and then its followed by the last lines, “Live for now/ and dream afar”. The version of me that’s singing it is quite a road-worncharacter – literally. I’d been driving around Europe in a van, with war starting out. So maybe that mindset.”

Another elegiacally beautiful track by Rhys, the track is accompanied by a shimmering visual that compliments the care-worn wonderment of the music, watch now. Expect “Silver Lining Lead Balloons” to be one of the stand-out new tracks that Gruff and his band perform on a series of sold-out dates through 2024 across the UK, Europe and USA.
