Foy Vance unveils new track 'If Christopher Calls'

With his highly-anticipated new album set to land in the coming months, Foy Vance has now unveiled the next cut to be lifted from his forthcoming full-length.

The new single 'If Christopher Calls' was written for his wife about her late father, and follows on from the previously shared tracks 'Time Stand Still', 'Sapling', and the record's title-track in previewing his new LP 'Signs Of Life', which is out on the 10th September via Gingerbread Man Records/Elektra Records.

Speaking about the new offering, he said, “Christopher was Marie, my wife’s father, who passed away suddenly a few years back. When it happened, Marie was in London and I was in Scotland. Her mum had phoned her to say Christopher had dropped in the kitchen but they weren’t sure if he was dead. Marie wasn’t there, she was a few miles away and just talking to her mum on the phone, trying to tell her what to do.”

“Marie then called me and when she explained the situation it was clear to me that he was already dead. But she was still holding out hope that he would be alive when she got there, and I let her think that, rather than tell her what I was certain to be true. And it was. He died immediately. Her hope of hearing his voice again was heartbreaking. She then came to Nashville with me while I was recording an album, and every day we would wake in the morning then go and sit out the back with a coffee, and that is where I would leave her - and that is where I would find her when I got home.”
