New track 'Myela' addresses the refugee crisis...
Nick Mulvey

Nick Mulvey has revealed that new song 'Myela' was prompted by the refugee crisis.

New album 'Wake Up Now' is incoming, with the songwriter set to play a high profile Glastonbury slot this weekend.

As a warm up, Nick performed at London's Village Underground last night (June 19th), a sweltering affair that came lashed with new music.

New song 'Myela' was an immediate stand out, the undulating, forever-evolving groove underpinning an earnest, enthralling vocal from the songwriter.

Co-written with band mate Federico Bruno, the track was laid down at a South London studio alongside producer Dan Carey.

Nick Mulvey explains: “Having been deeply touched by the crisis I wanted to write about it, and did so in partnership with Federico. We felt unworthy to write poetry about this subject. Exploring first-hand accounts of refugee journeys, we wanted to give them voice. To share with people who listen to my music, to make them aware the situation continues”.

Check it out now.

'Wake Up Now' will be released on September 8th - pre-order LINK.
