‘Forever & Always’ addresses the question, “No matter what you are going through, no matter what is happening, if the world was about to end, who would you want to be with?” according to frontman Michael Murphy. He continues, “This is made extra special for me as Becks is my wife. The song is written about her so to have her singing on it is a bit of a dream come true. With everything that has happened in the last year and half, the sentiment of this song feels even more fitting now.”
‘Forever & Always’ is the third single from Written By Wolves’ upcoming EP, The Collab Project, due out on 17th September (self-release). The new EP is a collection of re-imagined collaborations of tracks from the band’s debut album ‘Secrets‘, released in late 2019. In addition to Becks, Trenton Woodley (Hands Like Houses), Kellin Quinn (Sleeping With Sirens), and others have collaborated on tracks for the EP.
Michael Murphy explains that “The Collab Project is an on-going initiative to try and spread awareness, and to remind our fans and our followers, that no matter what they are going through, no matter what mental health struggles or demons they are going through right now, they don’t have to do it alone and they don’t have to deal with it on their own.” He adds, “The aim is to help normalise talking about our mental health issues and to help to breakdown the stigma attached to mental health.” Watch the band’s video explanation of The Collab Project here.
