SYML collaborates with Sara Watkins on new single 'Better Part Of Me'

With his eagerly-awaited new album landing early next year, SYML has now unveiled the next cut to be lifted from his forthcoming full-length.

The new single 'Better Part Of Me' sees him team up with Sara Watkins for the release, and follows on from the previously shared 'Howling' ft. Lucius and his stunning Guy Garvey collaboration 'Lost Myself' in previewing his sophomore LP 'The Day My Father Died', which is out on the 3rd February via Nettwerk.

Speaking about the new offering, he said, "When we talk about someone being the 'better part of me', it's certainly a familiar trope. For me, there is a sweetness that is appropriate and not saccharin when we think about our 'other'. Love is certainly a journey full of conflict and challenge, and the best way to become better together is through being honest with ourselves and one another. And to have Sara Watkins join me on this song is something of a dream. Nickel Creek's first album was a blueprint for me as I started singing and writing songs. I love her voice, and the tenderness and simplicity she brings to this song fits perfectly."
