  • Snow Patrol Announces New Album “The Forest Is The Path”, Shares New Song “The Beginning”

  • Northern Irish alt-rock band Snow Patrol, consisting of Gary Lightbody (vocals/rhythm guitar), Nathan Connolly (lead guitar) and Johnny McDaid (keyboards), has announced that their eighth studio album “The Forest Is The Path” will be released on September 13, 2024.

    The album is their first body of work in six years since the 2018 album “Wildness” and comprises a 12-track.
    Also, it is the first release after drummer Johnny Quinn and bassist Paul Wilson left the band in 2023.
    From the album, the band unveiled the fist single called “The Beginning” on May 29, 2024.
    The track was written by Gary Lightbody, Johnny McDaid, Nathan Connolly, Troy Van Leeuwen, and Will Reynolds.
    Produced by Fraser T. Smith, Johnny McDaid, Gary Lightbody, and Will Reynolds.

    The band frontman Gary Lightbody said of the song, “We had a few wee ideas kicking about that would eventually be recorded and find their way onto the album but when Johnny and I found ourselves in the Somerset countryside about to start writing for this album in earnest The Beginning was written on the very first day. That's why it's called the beginning in fact.”
  • He continued, “I tend to name songs before I write the lyrics. So if Johnny, Nathan and I are working on the music for a track it will generally have a placeholder name that will get changed once I write the lyrics, one that better reflects the words of the song. BUT in this case, even though there are probably better words and phrases (that actually appear in the song) to be used as titles, The Beginning stuck.”

  • He added, ”This album took us on many uncharted routes, with sometimes weird and sometimes wonderful turns, and so it's hard not to think of the start of this album as a new beginning. We honour the past, deeply. This is our thirtieth year, so we have an awful lot of it, past I mean. Tons of it. We have a profound love and respect for all who have been on this journey with us those many years. But while we honour the past we also want to cherish the present and look to the future. So this is the beginning of something, and we are so excited to share it with you all.”
