Foy Vance’s fourth studio album and the follow-up to 2016’s acclaimed The Wild Swan, Signs Of Life is the sound of a beloved singer-songwriter at the peak of his powers. Created out of the grimness of 2020, Signs of Life is an album about dawn after darkness, hope after despair, engagement after isolation, uplift after lockdown.
Upon its release, The New York Times featured “Sapling” in The Playlist and Clash Music applauded the song as “An instant fan favorite… a song about renewal and survival.” The album’s early tracks have received additional praise from Entertainment Tonight, Americana UK, and more.
Signs Of Life was recorded in three locations: Vance’s Pilgrim studio at home on the shores of Loch Tay in Highland Perthshire, another recording set-up in a nearby Dunvarlich House, and at Plan B’s Kings X studio in London. The album was written and played more or less entirely by Vance, with assistance from young Northern Irish producer Gareth Dunlop. Serendipitously, Dunlop had been inspired on his career path by a chance encounter with Vance in a coffee shop 18 years ago.
Commenting on the album’s timely subject matter, Vance shared, “Signs of Life is about re-emergence – me in my own soft revolution, the world re-emerging in what we’re about to see as we hopefully go back to some semblance of normality. But just life in general – flowers growing through the cracks in Chernobyl. Life finds a way, doesn’t it?”
