Foy Vance collaborates with Anderson East on new version of 'Sapling'

Following on from the release of his highly-praised new album 'Signs Of Life' near the end of last year, Foy Vance has now returned to share a new take on the record's lead single.

The new version of 'Sapling' sees him team up with Anderson East for the release, and offers up a new perspective on the humble offering.

Speaking about the new rendition, Foy said, “This is the waking up to a harsh reality that my addictions were putting at risk everything I had worked hard for. A home, a family and a career. It’s about being honest. There was a time in my life that I felt like an oak, but there was no oak there when I looked, just a fragile sapling, but a sign of life nonetheless.

“I’ve never been eager to duet, but when this opportunity came up it made complete sense to me to have Anderson on ‘Sapling’ having pulled me through a hard spot himself."

While Anderson added, “Foy and his music have always been a massive inspiration to me and on my music. I’m beyond honored to be asked to be a part of this beautiful song. He has a way of draining every last drop of emotion out of every note and I’m humbled he’d ask to add my voice to such a powerful and moving song. If the world was full of more Foys, we’d be doing alright.”
