Orlando Weeks, former Maccabees frontman, releases first solo track

Orlando Weeks, the former Maccabees frontman, has released his first solo track.

The new song, ‘Safe In Sound’, arrives from Weeks’ forthcoming new solo album that has been 18 months in the making.

“I was witness to this momentous event in our lives and didn’t want that to go unmarked in the work that I do,” Weeks said. “I found that writing was a way to anchor moments and cement feelings that we were sharing.

“Throughout that dazzling year, with its steady march towards our son’s arrival, I felt grateful to the discipline of working on music for the semblance of structure that it gave me. Musically I wanted to make something that stretched me, something with beauty and intensity.”

To coincide with the news, Weeks also announced a string of tour dates which will see him perform in Glasgow, Manchester, Birmingham, Leeds, and London.
