LISTEN: Josh Franceschi’s ‘Songs I Wrote A Decade Ago’

He thought they were gone for good, and now they are yours. 

You Me At Six's Josh Franceschi has released four solo tracks he has put under the moniker of 'Songs I Wrote A Decade Ago'

Here's a little explanation

"Back when I was 18/19 I recorded some songs with Matt O'Grady which until very recently I had assumed had disappeared for good. He hit me up recently when clearing out some old hard drives and said he’d found a bunch of tunes we’d done & didn’t think he should just bin them. So that’s exactly what they are, songs that we haven’t just chucked in the bin."

So without further ado, and with a little bit of context here they are:

"So I’m pretty sure we did this around about June 2009. This is the first song that Matt and I recorded that wasn’t a Ymas song. Like all of the songs I’m posting tonight, this has been untouched since we tracked it then."

"I vaguely remember recording this after we put out ‘Hold Me Down’. To be honest, if we’d done like a deluxe edition of the album, I would’ve showed the lads this one as I felt an acoustic song on HMD could’ve been cool. Anyways, we didn’t and again this one has been uncovered from the deep abyss that is Matt's studio hard drive."

"Ok, when it comes to this one I had genuinely forgotten it existed. I don’t remember writing it, I don’t recall recording it. If Matt says we did & got it on tape so to speak, then it must be true."

"During these weird times I’d actually been working on a new song, not sure what I was going to do with it. Turns out it was the same as this. Same guitar parts but different lyrics & melodies. Was weird when Matt sent me this tbh. Spun my head out. Anyway, this is how it is & how it’ll remain."

And there you have it!
