BOND’S new single, ‘Come Home’ was released today (25th June 2020) and with that secured its place at the Number One spot on the iTunes Classical Chart fending off Celine Dion, Andrea Boccelli with Ed Sheeran and Dua Lipa.
The single also received an advance play the day before its release on Scala Radio by DJ presenter Mark Forrest.
Speaking about the single Eos explains, ‘We wrote Come Home with Toby Pitman, and that day had gone to his room at Air Studios to write some music together. Sometimes something just clicks and it’s as though the music was always there and you just pluck it from the ether. Those are wonderful days – especially when you realise it definitely isn’t something else that already exists! Come Home came together in 30 minutes – and just needed to be arranged so that we each had parts to record.
I love the space in this piece – it really breathes. Whereas our music is usually upbeat with big production and a more pop or world sensibility (our first two albums were recorded with the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra, so the sound was massive!). Come Home is purely acoustic: just string quartet and piano. Emotionally, for me anyway, there is a sense of overcoming adversity about Come Home, and a sense of hope too. It has a sense of yearning, perhaps a sense of making peace with it too.
