The Villagers album The Art Of Pretending To Swim is released on September 21st this month and we’ve so far heard two songs ‘Fool’ and ‘A Trick Of The Light’.

It’s shaping up to be an exciting release to hear in full, with today’s release of ‘Again’, the opening track from the album, which finds a sweet spot for acoustic-lead folk music and textured production and is a song about renewal and readying yourself to create. It’s a hopeful song. “I’ve found again a place in my heart again / For God again in the form of Art again.”
