The Wildhearts have released a brand new single “Remember These Days” before their appearance at the Download Pilot Festival on Sunday, June 20. “Remember These Days” is the first single taken from the album 21st Century Love Songs, out September 3 via Graphite Records.
Sometimes inspiration strikes at exactly the right point in time, Ginger explains “I was sitting blind drunk one afternoon, looking at a picture of me and CJ on stage having a great old time. It had been a year since we’d played live and I started to miss it even more. So I started writing this song. I never write while drunk. I’ve probably my done it half a dozen times in my life. But the picture got me all emotional, thinking about how much fun we used to have, even in the ‘bad old days’. It made me want to document these times because who knows, maybe we’ll look back on these times and remember only the good things?”
