UK singer-songwriter, John Smith, has shared his brand new single, ‘The World Turns’. It serves as the first release since Smith's acclaimed 2021 album, The Fray, which spawned fan-favourites such as ‘Friends’, ‘Hold On’ and the Sarah Jarosz-assisted ‘Eye to Eye’.

The new track, ‘The World Turns’, features Smith's trademark charismatic vocals coupled with a sinuous, enchanting electric bass-line, with the Essex native crooning warmly to his lover.

The infectious track will delight long-time fans of John Smith, and listeners will no doubt be hoping the release will ultimately find its way onto Smith's highly anticipated The Fray follow-up.

Speaking ahead of the single being made available, John Smith explained how the song came about, “I wrote this with the great Iain Archer, after playing him a riff on my steel telecaster and talking for a couple of hours about how we both felt in the wake of a difficult couple of years. This is a song about holding tight as the world carries on, unflinching”.

He went on to endearingly outline, “Some days it seems that life is carrying on about its immense business and there is nothing any of us can do. I do believe that if you can find something or someone good to hold on to, it becomes almost possible to stay balanced”.

Fans will have plenty of chances to hear ‘The World Turns’ live next year, with John Smith set to embark on his eagerly awaited 2024 UK tour. This will take Smith across London, Bristol, Milton Keynes, Leeds, Glasgow, Edinburgh, Cambridge, Warwick and more.
