TRACK OF THE DAY : The Miserable Rich - FHS

FHS is the second single to be taken from The Miserable Rich's forthcoming album Overcome which will be released digitally on December 1st and physically in February 2024. A reinvention of an old track criminally hidden away on the b-side of their standalone single Anything's Possible, the band are sounding as fresh and strong as ever.

The reinvented track features brass and layered vocals, fleshing out the song from its original form into something joyous and celebratory as front man James De Malplaquet explains "This is more of a vibe than a song. It celebrates the joy of having the sun/son in our lives. The brass section was recorded in two sessions of about half an hour each. The birds are from Will’s garden." The accompanying video features snapshots from their whole time as a band as well as more recent family and band pictures collected together to create a warmth that matches the optimism of the song perfectly. 

The Miserable Rich had previously released three albums - Twelve Ways To Count (2008), Of Flight And Fury (2010) and Miss You In The Days (2011).
