Listen out for a new take on ‘You’ve Lost That Loving Feeling’ in a Forest-based song being released by Brooklyn-based rocker Tom Wardle being released today.
A member of Nottingham Forest NYC, has gone one step further from keeping fellow fans in the Big Apple entertained between games and says the club are fully behind his attempts to make ‘Secret’ a club anthem.
The club are promoting the song on their social media channels ahead of next week’s return to action… you can read below what his press release says…
Brooklyn-based British rocker Tom Wardle returns with a bang on new power-pop track Secret, following on from his critically acclaimed single Jacqueline, which Rolling Stone named one of their Songs You Need To Know of 2019.
Secret – an anthem bursting with defiant, hopeful energy, featuring rich, layered guitars and a heartfelt chorus chant coupled with Wardle’s earnest, raspy vocals echoes the swagger of classic rock artists such as Thin Lizzy and The Faces.
The single sees Tom team up again with members of the Brian Wilson band in Hollywood, whom he worked with previously on 2019’s Jacqueline EP.
Written about a fight back after a fall from grace, the song speaks of personal determination and the longing to be heard again – a theme that was picked up on by English football’s legendary underdogs and former European Champions Nottingham Forest, of whom Wardle is a lifelong fan.
To his delight, the club are using the song as their adopted anthem to galvanise fans on social media when the current season restarts in mid-June, as the club anticipates a return to the English top flight after a 20 year absence.
Wardle said “Forest’s worldwide fanbase are unique in that they feel like a family, and I wanted to honour those fans with the song. The video montage which it accompanies really makes you swell with pride to be associated with such a city and a club.”
Secret is available to download and stream from all platforms from June 12.
