After shooting to the forefront of the UK folk Americana scene with their debut album Wild Silence, The Wandering Hearts headed to the genre’s spiritual home of Woodstock at the start of 2020 to work on a follow-up. The result is their forthcoming self-titled album.

The Wandering Hearts headed deep into the Catskills, where producers Simone Felice and David Baron hosted experimental and spiritual sessions in a studio packed with vintage instruments. The album echoes the timeless song craft of Fleetwood Mac and Simon & Garfunkel with the pure passion of Jade Bird and The Lumineers. It’s a record that celebrates life, new beginnings, and striving to shine through a darkening world.

Wild Silence propelled The Wandering Hearts upon a remarkable journey. After a personal invitation from the legendary Marty Stuart (who wrote and performed on the new song Dreams), they became the first British band to make their US debut at Nashville’s iconic Ryman Auditorium and then play the Grand Ole Opry in the same week.

An early career highlight came at the UK Americana Awards, where they won the Bob Harris Emerging Artist Award and performed with Robert Plant, Mumford & Sons and Imelda May. Two years on the road followed, which included sold-out headline tours, opening for Tom Petty and Stevie Nicks at Hyde Park, and support slots for Lukas Nelson and Justin Townes Earle.

Starting the year with virtual performances at AmericanaFest UK, Philadelphia Folk Festival’s Cabin Fever Fest and most recently, SXSW, The Wandering Hearts return to touring in the UK in August. The band’s long-awaited intimate In Harmony headline tour, originally scheduled for April 2020, represents their first UK shows since early 2020.
