True Strays have announced a UK Tour this spring around the release of their brand new single, Campesina.

Campesina, recorded on 8 track tape in New Cut Studios, Bristol, on analogue equipment, is the first single from the forthcoming debut album from True Strays. The song was recorded in one day as a challenge to recreate the studio process of the pre-digital era. Tracked live, Campesina (Country Girl in Spanish) is a joyous declaration of love between two people from different worlds and how by celebrating our shared commonalities and connection to the land we can overcome our differences. The track will be released in conjunction with the UN’s World Happiness Day on the 20th March.

The challenges of forming a band mean that most split up before they even leave the practise room. True Strays met in a sandpit when they were in playgroup and have seen many a great band fall by the wayside. But despite many previous band break ups and hard knocks, Joe James and James Cameron are using these personal experiences to fuel their latest endeavour with greater urgency and honesty than ever.

“It’s a dream for your band to be the reason to visit new places. We can’t wait to meet new people and share our latest music.” said Joe James

“This tour is our most exciting one yet because it’s a full UK tour. It’s always been our intention to get up to the North of England and Scotland and now it’s happening!” said James Cameron.
