Ward Thomas Share Poignant New Single ‘Painted Legacy’ and Announce New EP ‘The Space Between’

Today, (Friday, April 3rd) record-making British country crossover duo Ward Thomas, consisting of twins Catherine and Lizzy have shared their poignant new single ‘Painted Legacy’. The heartfelt track sees the girls returning to the sonic sound of their debut album ‘From Where We Stand’ whilst also showcasing their lyrical maturity.

Produced by renowned producer Oskar Winberg (Shawn Mendes, Paloma Faith), and co-written by Ward Thomas, Rebekah Powell, and Jessica Sharman ‘Painted Legacy’ is a beautifully moving and sentimental song that showcases the girls’ soaring vocal harmonies with its delicate stripped back melody and production.

Talking about the new release, Lizzy says: “We wrote this song after our uncle passed away in the summer. It’s written from the perspective of his children carrying on his legacy. He was writing a book all about legacy before he died and the legacy he left behind was being a Father, a Grandfather, a husband and a friend to many.”

The new single is the first official release to be lifted off their forthcoming EP ‘The Space Between’ the project was written and recorded between London, Hampshire, and Nashville, and promises to be a heartfelt, inspirational collection of tracks that will pull on the heartstrings. Speaking about the upcoming record, Lizzy said, “this EP is all about togetherness. Holding space for someone, reaching out to help, or just being present and there with someone through a difficult time.”
