Band to release 'Ghost Hands' next Thursday (April 21)

The Music have announced they will release a farewell single next Thursday (April 21).

The Leeds band, who announced last month (March 31) that they were splitting up after 10 years together, will release ‘Ghost Hands’ for free via their official website Themusic.co.uk.

‘Ghost Hands’ was due to be included on the band’s fourth album and you can hear it by scrolling down to the bottom of the page.

The Music‘s frontman Rob Harvey said of ‘Ghost Hands’: “We love the track and it just seemed a shame to leave it gathering dust for ever. It’s good to go out with something positive and new and we think it deserves to see the light of day.”

The band have also added a second farewell show at O2 Academy Leeds as well as upgrading their London farewell show from O2 Shepherd’s Bush Empire to O2 Academy Brixton.

The Music will now play O2 Academy Brixton on August 4 and O2 Academy Leeds on August 5 and 6.
