LT Wade, the solo project of former FURS founding member Liam Wade, has released his latest single ‘Imagine Us’ which arrives as the closing track from his upcoming album Requiem For The American Dream.
The new record, set for release on 24th April through Dopeness Records, sees Wade in reflective mood as he offers a social commentary on the death of the ‘American Dream’—a perspective viewpoint after he swapped his life in London for one in New York City.
Requiem For The American Dream exhibits yet another turn in the road for Wade’s career, one that has spanned 12 years and traversed everything from a touring guitarist role for Courtney Love to a breakthrough with his family-affair four-piece band FURS. Now though, he’s out on his own—even if he has recruited some old faces for creative contribution.
Wade, who has dreamt up the new material and forge its existence with his own hands, relentlessly worked away in his studio to write, record and tirelessly ponder the direction of the themes approached with his lyrical and sometimes juxtaposing soundscapes. Teaming up once again with longtime collaborators Olly Betts and Grant Zubritsky for extra musicianship, the new album also features guest appearances from the likes of FURS lead singer Elle Wade, Black Wire’s Si McCabe and Tim Davis.
Wade’s latest offering, ‘Imagine Us’, which follows the previously released ‘Side By Side’, is a shimmering breath of fresh air and arrives as Far Out’s track of the Day: “‘Imagine Us’ is the final song on the album, it’s the positive ending to the record that tells the story of people putting their differences aside and working together for a better world,” Wade said of the song.
He added: “I wrote the song with my good buddy Grant Zubritsky (Chet Faker, Maggie Rodgers, Verite) who plays bass and sax on the whole album.”
