Heaven 10:04


Romare —real name Archie Fairhurst— releases euphoric and uplifting single ‘Heaven’, the third and final from his forthcoming album “Home”. The new album also marks his third on Ninja Tune and first full length album since 2016’s critically acclaimed “Love Songs: Part Two”.

The new track comes shortly after the release of ‘The River’ and lead single ‘Sunshine’ which Mixmag said “feels personal, stands strong on its own two feet and projects a feeling of collective joy”. The idea of ‘collective joy’ is something that inspired Fairhurst when working on the album, commenting that ‘The River’ was "inspired by being in a big space with lots of people listening to loud music - something which can be spiritually uplifting". ‘Heaven’ follows this theme, “it took shape after playing a live version at Printworks in London at the end of 2018” Fairhurst reminisces, reflecting on the atmosphere of the London venue. “Originally the song started as a whistle or a hum, and then different harmony lines and bass lines were added”.

Press support for the album so far has come from the likes of RA, Mixmag, Clash, Vinyl Factory, XLR8R and more, plus radio support from Lauren Laverne’s who chose ‘The River’ as her Whilst You Were Sleeping Track Of The Day. Towards the end of 2019 Romare set out on a US tour which included live shows at Elsewhere in Brooklyn, Los Angeles’ 1720 and August Hall in San Francisco. Over the last few years he’s played shows at London venues Printworks, KOKO and Oval Space, plus two sold out month-long residencies, first at Phonox and mostly recently at the Jazz Cafe. Fairhurst is currently working on a brand new live show with plans to tour in 2021.

‘Heaven’ is out today, ahead of “Home” out 31st July on Ninja Tune.

As Romare, Archie Fairhurst’s working practice is rooted in collage, building vivid new forms out of existing material. Playful and immediate, but also deeply researched and compelling, his albums and performances reaching back to 2012 unfurl as a patchwork of inspirations and obsessive lines of enquiry made up of a global panoply of source material. ... more
