Beth Orton delivers new track 'Friday Night'

With her highly-anticipated new album landing later next month, Beth Orton has now dropped the next cut to be lifted from her forthcoming full-length.

The new single 'Friday Night' comes accompanied by a stunning self-directed video, filmed in Hydra, Greece, and follows on from the previously shared 'Forever Young' and the record's title-track in previewing her new LP 'Weather Alive', which is out on the 23rd September via Partisan Records.

Speaking about the new offering, she said, “Friday Night is someone reflecting on, and trying to decide, what to give up or what to surrender to. Passion or ambivalence? Whether to “bleed or rust in the rain.”

“Most of us are struggling to make sense of where to put the love we have for those that are lost to us, let alone the ones that remain. Sometimes there is no right answer except to find the wisdom in the spaces between the endings and beginnings, in the remembrance of things past or in search of lost time, there are always re-percussions to the choices we make. We are listening to the internal dialogue of someone living it out, what is futile and what is worth fighting for, and trying to do as little damage along the way. Friday night being the night that makes the week more bearable, there is hope.

“Coming to realise what is real and what is out of reach can be unbelievably painful, waking up to the love that remains can be the greatest gift and the most wonderful surprise. Even in absence there is presence, there is no escape but to look for where the love is still alive within us.”
