NEWS: Paul Thomas Saunders shares new single and video, ‘Bloodlust’

Paul Thomas Saunders is back. After almost eight years away from music during which time the Brighton-based singer-songwriter became a paramedic and member of a RNLI lifeboat crew, his long-awaited second album, Figure In A Landscape will be released on 21st October this year via the independent record label sevenfoursevensix (Matilda Mann, Matt Maltese, Lizzie Reid).

The follow-up to his critically acclaimed 2014 debut album Beautiful Desolation, is heralded by the new single ‘Bloodlust’.

Speaking about ‘Bloodlust’, Paul Thomas Saunders says: “I wanted to write a naïve antidote for the spiralling sense of doom you can feel as the world seems to spin further and further into an utterly avoidable nose-dive. I wanted it to feel like finding a moment of peace, standing with your eyes closed, as the chaos turns around you. All those sentiments seemed to be encapsulated in this song – feeling like a child, as I do sometimes – overwhelmed by what’s happening around us and wanting some unrealistic, fantastical respite from that.”

Figure In A Landscape is available to pre-order now
