Stitch In Time,” the new song from acclaimed U.K.-based band Bear’s Den, debuts today via Communion Records alongside an accompanying lyric video; listen HERE. Recorded at Middle Farm Studios in South Devon, England, the track was produced by frequent collaborator Ian Grimble and arranged by Sally Herbert. The new music builds off the release of the group’s 2022 album Blue Hours.

“‘Stitch In Time’ is a song exploring the saying, ‘A stitch in time saves nine.’ Based on the idea that if you can sort something out at the right moment in time it will save you a lot more work down the line,” recallls band member Andrew Davie. “I was thinking about that line a lot particu-larly in relation to trauma, both my own and of those closest to me. This idea of reaching back through time to be with someone in a difficult moment and just being with them and letting them know that it’s not ok. The idea of trying to reach someone before that moment just becomes hidden and then woven into the fabric of their character. A theme of some of the newer songs is fears around parenthood and becoming a dad. Recognising that I don’t want my daughter to inherit some of the difficult things I had to go through or develop any of my unhealthy ways I have of dealing with stuff.”

In support of the new music, Bear’s Den returns to the U.S. for an extensive run of tour dates this fall. The set of shows kicked off on September 8 in Dallas and includes performances at New York’s Webster Hall, Los AngelesTroubadour, Chicago’s Thalia Hall, D.C.’s 9:30 Club and more. Full tour routing can be found below.

Most recently, Bear’s Den recorded the soundtrack for season three of the Apple Original series “Trying,” which stars Esther Smith (“Uncle,” Cuckoo) and Rafe Spall (The Big Short, Life of Pi). Written entirely by band members Davie and Kevin Jones, the soundtrack features multiple collaborations with Jade Bird as well as Maisie Peters and Monica Martin. Davie and Jones worked closely with creator Andy Walton and directors Jim Hanlon (“Catastrophe,” “The Pu-nisher”) and Elliot Hegarty (“Ted Lasso”) to craft songs that tie-in with the storyline of each epi-sode.

The London-based band played music in various incarnations before officially forming in 2012. Their 2014 debut album, Islands, earned them an Ivor Novello nomination—the U.K.’s most prestigious songwriting accolade—alongside notable acts Ben Howard and Hozier, while their 2016 album, Red Earth & Pouring Rain, reached #6 on the U.K. album chart. In 2021 the band released their third studio album, So that you might hear me, to critical praise both Stateside and abroad. The band has sold 500,000 records over the course of their career and, after four years of nonstop touring, has sold over 150,000 tickets worldwide including global festival appearances at Bonnaroo and Glastonbury.
