London-based singer/songwriter Ella Walker aka WILDES has announced her debut album Other Words Fail Me which will be released on October 7th via AWAL. Produced by St Francis Hotel (Michael Kiwanuka, Little Simz), the album will feature the newly released single “Far and Wide”.
Of the song’s lyrical inspiration, she said: “Far and Wide is a celebration of friendship. It reflects the madness and uncertainty of early adulthood and the constant change and turbulence we all go through. After neglecting them for a long time, I realised how constant and secure my friendships had become. They saved me, melting away my shame and holding me when I couldn’t cope. Banding together against our shared, frenzied existences, it dawned on me that these loving and intimate friendships were more valuable than any boyfriend had ever been. The constant support and unconditional love of these people is the reason I am here today. So this is a love letter to those friends who saved me – I would do anything for you.”
