Snow Patrol has announced their return. ‘Wildness’, their first album in seven years, finds the band searching for clarity, connection, and meaning, while staying true to the melodic songwriting prowess that brought them to prominence. ‘Wildness’ taps into something raw and primitive, and lead-singer and songwriter Gary Lightbody says of the album:

There are many types of wildness, but I think it can be distilled into two: the wildness of the modern age, all it’s confusion, illogic and alienation and a more ancient wildness. Something primal, alive and beautiful that speaks to our true connectivity, our passion, our love, our communion with nature and each other. This is the kind of wildness the album is centered around. The loss of it. Trying to reconnect with it. To remember it.
