As beautiful as it gets.

have released another track from their upcoming album 'Normal Fears', and it's balled-based perfection.

In the form of a live session, 'Honest To God' is soulful and sentimentally stunning, with each piano key ringing out loud and proud. It's a heartfelt and touching track, something that Fatherson do better than most.

Vocalist Ross Leighton had this to say about the track:

“Honest To God is about one of the least confident times in my life, and feeling like a total failure. It's about that crippling loss of confidence spinning yourself out into a really dark place. Thinking the worst in every situation and not being able to believe in yourself. I spent a long time trying to redefine what music meant to me and how, if ever, I was going to get the spark back. It took a long time to finish, unpacking everything that it is about really took it out of me. I wrote the chorus with my friend Joe from Amber Run over zoom and the verses over about 2 months myself. It had to say just enough and no more, I love that about it. It took a while to distill but as a result it is one of the songs on the album I’m most proud of and one of my favourite songs I’ve ever written."

Here it is, enjoy:

'Normal Fears' is set to be released on 25 February via Easy Life Records.

It will also feature 'Same Old, Brand New':

And 'End Of The World':
