Three simple words were all it took for Cardiff-based Falling Nine to record their new single, a cover of the 1974 hit ‘Fox on the Run’ originally written and performed by 70s Glam Rockers Sweet. “Fancy recording it?.”

Frontman David Lydiard explains “I hadn’t heard the song for ages and one day during a trip down a YouTube rabbit hole I came across a live cover by the Chili Peppers with John singing. It had a raw, punk energy to it, and being a massive Frusciante fanboy, I instantly loved it. So I put up a very rough, live acoustic version of it on our YouTube Channel, just for a bit of fun. During lockdown, Steve (Watts) stumbled across it, tells me that he likes it, and asked me if I fancy recording a full version of it, and here we are”

‘Fox on the Run’ sees Falling Nine on a sort of comeback trail with this single being their first new release in four years. “Sometimes life gets in the way, which is why we’ve taken so long between this and our last record (2016’s ‘Atonement’), but priorities have shifted and we’re pumped to be working on new music again.”

For this single the 2-piece have enlisted the help of lead guitarist Justin Larner to compose an original solo that Lydiard says takes the song into another gear. “Justin is an incredible guitar player and I’ve been a fan of his tone and his playing since first hearing him when he played with Grand Ultra. We wanted a solo that kicks you in the arse and Justin nailed it 100%.”

‘Fox on the Run’ was released Friday November 27th 2020 and is available on all streaming platforms.
