Kodaline‘s fourth album “One Day At A Time” is coming on June 12th, featuring their new single “Saving Grace”, which was released today.
The Irish rock band’s previous albums “In A Perfect World”, “Coming Up For Air” and “Politics Of Living” have all been number one in Ireland, and have now over a billion streams on Spotify. “One Day At A Time” just adds a new chapter to their career, and it is shown by the fact that they have approached the new record with a streamlined process that took them back to their roots.
The majority of the sessions revolved around the four band members alone in their modest recording space in Dublin, with bassist Jason Boland leading the production side of things.
Kodaline’s recent tracks “Wherever You Are” and “Sometimes” have quickly amassed 15 million streams on the popular music website alongside 7,5 million views on YouTube. Their new single “Saving Grace” is an anthemic expression of optimism and vulnerability, with Steve Garrigan‘s soulful topline complemented by the band’s uplifting choral vocal harmonies.
About the track, Kodaline said:
It is a song about that special person in your life that is there for you no matter what, a song that means a lot to all of us, as we all rely on people in our personal lives to be there and support us through the high and lows of our career.
In addition to this emotional number, the highlights of the forthcoming album include “Spend It With You”, the tale of a couple who vow to stay together as the world hurtles towards its final apocalypse, a beautiful celebration of the ups and downs of relationships in “Care”, and the concluding arena-scaled drama of “In The End”.
The band’s primary objective was to focus on the emotion that has informed many Kodaline fan favourites. As we’ve seen from the two recent singles, they’re playing to their strengths: insistent melodies and captivating hooks exploring stories that are revealing, unguarded and immediately relatable.
Fans who pre-order the album can instantly download “Saving Grace”, “Sometimes” and “Wherever You Are” from HERE. “One Day At A Time” is also available to pre-save on Spotify and Apple Music.
