The Big Moon are gearing up to release their second album, in early 2020.

The Big Moon took 2017 by storm with their playful indie love songs. Only a year on from finishing an extensive tour, they’ve returned with details for their follow up album, Walking Like We Do.

They had already teased the release of their second album, when they dropped ‘It’s Easy Then’ in the summer, whilst in the midst of performing at a string of festivals, including Spain’s Benicássim.

On Tuesday night, the band appeared on Annie Mac’s BBC Radio 1 show, which was co-hosted by Sam Fender, to reveal a new single ‘Your Light’ and more details about their sophomore album.

The new single, ’Your Light’ has a slick melody running through it, as frontwoman Juliette Jackson sings about forgetting about the stresses of life, if only for a moment:

Lately I’ve been fine, floating away… got so out of touch and started to levitate…

Talking about the new single, Jackson said:

This song is about freeing yourself from all of it, just for a moment. It’s a thanks to the one person or thing in your life that knows how to come in and open your curtains and light up the darkness and restore your strength so that when you clatter back down into the real world you have the strength to fight your battles, whatever they are.”

The new track signals a welcomed return from the band, check out the video for ‘Your Light’ below:
