Bear's Den share new single 'Stitch In Time'

Following on from the release of their highly-praised studio album 'Blue Hours' in May and their recent soundtrack for the AppleTV+ series Trying, Bear's Den are now rounding off their 2022 with a brand new single.

The new track 'Stitch In Time' was originally conceived during the sessions for their most recent LP, and they were inspired to finish it once they resumed touring after lockdown.

Speaking about the new offering, they said, "A Stitch in Time was a piano idea I was working on while writing Blue Hours and the first time I played through the rough sketch of the idea on piano to anyone was in RAK studios while working on the song New Ways. It felt like both Kev and I were immediately excited by the idea of the song back then and complimentary musical ideas felt immediate and exciting for both of us so as soon as I got back from the tour I focussed on finishing it.

"After being on the road as a band for the first time in a couple years after making Blue Hours, it felt so amazing and inspiring to be back playing to audiences again. It also felt like there was another side to the Blue Hours album that needed exploring. We had about 20 demos for Blue Hours but there were about as many more in varying states of completion that were also exciting. Stitch in Time being one of those. Super inspired by playing those shows again as a band, we decided to finish off a bunch more songs once we got back from tour and we recorded this one at the brilliant Middle Farm Studios in Devon.

"'Stitch in Time' is a song exploring ideas around trauma. Specifically the idea of reaching back through time to be with someone in a difficult moment and just being with them and letting them know that it’s not ok. Reaching someone before that moment becomes woven tightly into the fabric of their character. A theme of the newer songs is fears around parenthood. Recognising that I don’t want my kid to inherit some of the difficult things I went through or develop any of my unhealthy ways of dealing with stuff. "A stitch in time saves nine" is an old saying that essentially means if you can sort something out in the right moment - it might save you a lot more work down the line". That's kinda the essence of the song."
