The Feeling Announces New Album “San Vito”, Shares New Song “The Right Wrong”
British rock-pop band The Feeling, consisting of Dan Gillespie Sells (lead vocals/guitar), Richard Jones (bass), Kevin Jeremiah (guitar), Ciaran Jeremiah (keyboard) and Paul Stewart (drums), has announced that their seventh studio album “San Vito” will be released on April 12, 2024.
The album title is named after the town San Vito Dei Normanni, where they recorded the album at Sudestudio in Puglia, southern Italy.
The album is their first body of work in two years since the 2022 album “Loss. Hope. Love.”, and comprises a 12-track, produced by The Feeling.
The band said of the album, “2023 was a big year for us. Dan moved on from the Doghouse, our long-term base and studio, so in January we decided to try something different and headed to a studio in the Salento region of Puglia, southern Italy to write some songs and see what happened. Just like when we first recorded ‘Twelve Stops...’ in Kev and Ciaran's parents' shed, being locked away together and focused on our creativity as a band was a winning formula. After the first week we came back with five songs and a vibe on the recordings that felt exciting, fresh and very much 'The Feeling'!”
- They continued, “We made the decision to write and record the whole album there, and over the course of the year we ventured back out, with the album coming together in no time. The sun, food and culture seeped through into the sounds we were making. We brought in local brass, strings and pizzica/tarantella percussion players. It's very much an album by The Feeling but with a little Salento flavour mixed in, and we're very excited for you all to hear it.”
From the album, the band released a new song “The Right Wrong” on January 26, 2024.
The track was written and produced by Ciaran Jeremiah, Dan Gillespie Sells, Kevin Jeremiah, Paul Stewart, and Richard Jones.
The song is about freeing yourself from judgement. The band frontman Dan Gillespie Sells said of the song, “Freedom is a subject that fascinates me. I grew up queer in a queer household so people's idea of right and wrong were something we dealt with daily. This is just a pure pop song that playfully encourages the listener to make their own rules.”
