Billy Bragg Releases New Single King Tide And The Sunny Day Flood

Friday, 04 August 2017 Written by Laura Johnson

Billy Bragg has released a new single, King Tide and the Sunny Day Flood.

The track, which follows last month's The Sleep Of Reason, was inspired by the issue of global warming. Discussing it, he said:

“Sunny day flooding is a coastal phenomenon in which strong tides cause water to gush up from drains and beneath the ground, swamping basements and inundating roads. Rises in sea level due to meling ice-caps are making it an increasingly common occurrence in Florida, where some residential areas are experiencing it on an almost monthly basis. These communities are canaries in the mine, already living with the stark realities of climate change that some still deny is happening. On a planet the surface of which is 70% water, in which the temperature of oceans drives our weather systems, we will all be affected by global warming unless we act now to limit the damage done.”

Bragg will head out on his Bridges Not Walls solo tour later this year.
