New Years Day have unleashed an emphatic new single, I Still Believe.

The track is taken from their upcoming fifth album Half Black Heart (which is due out on March 1 via Century Media), and in fact, at the time it was written it served as a rallying call for the rest of the record…

“The first song we wrote for our new album was actually I Still Believe,” explains singer Ash Costello. “It was during the summer of 2020, amidst the challenges of the COVID pandemic, when it felt like all our previous efforts and all the work we had put in the years prior were in vain.

“Personally, I felt lost and uncertain about what lay ahead. However, a voice within me urged me to persevere, to never give up, and to maintain faith that things would eventually fall into place as they were meant to. I realised the importance of not overthinking and simply embracing the present moment.”

Ash adds that, “I Still Believe is a heartfelt anthem dedicated to anyone in need of a reminder that with unwavering self-belief, anything is possible.”
