Scots Trad-rock band Mànran have launched their new single Thugainn (pronounced Hook-in).
Translating to English as Come Along With Me, the single launch on July 5 coincided with the Discover Scotland: North Coast 500 documentary by Sean Grieve that was previewed at the XPO North Film Showcase last Thursday (July 4).
Mànran were commissioned by Skye-born director Grieve to provide a back catalogue of their music to soundtrack the 90-minute documentary. To help promote this new body of work the six-piece have released this new single, written and sung by founding member Ewen Henderson.
Ewen said: ‘Thugainn is a summer-infused love song in which the earth is promised to the object of the singer’s affections if they’ll “Come Along With Me”. The lyrics and music feel very much like the soundtrack to a classic romantic road movie, so the opportunity to pair Thugainn with Sean’s North Coast 500 film felt like a perfect match.’
