24-year-old twins Catherine and Lizzy, best known as UK artists Ward Thomas, have announced the title of their eagerly anticipated new album Restless Minds set for release on October 5 via Sony Music Entertainment Australia.
“Restless Minds” is the follow up to their 2016 UK #1 charting debut album Cartwheels.
“We never consciously tried to be country,” Lizzy says. “We love country but we’ve always set out to simply write songs that suit the content. The country artists we listen to know are the ones mixing it up and moving the genre on – Maren Morris and Kacey Musgraves in particular. But we also love Lorde, Cardi B, Haim and Julia Michaels.”
“As soon as we started writing the album, it became obvious what the themes would be,” says Catherine. “We were discussing current issues for us as twentysomethings, in a world that’s scary because it’s changing so quickly, but is also creating lots of exciting, new opportunities.”
Lead single ‘Lie Like Me’ is a biting indictment of lives faked online, accompanied by a deceptively sweet, flirtatiously upbeat musical track. The single is available for to stream or buy NOW.
