Foy Vance Releases Reimagined Sapling Duet With Anderson East

Friday, 21 January 2022 Written by Jon Stickler

Foy Vance has teamed up with Anderson East for a reimagined version of Sapling.

Driven by piano and a cathartic swell of emotion, the song was first recorded for the Northern Irish singer-songwriter's 2021 album, 'Signs Of Life'. The rework, meanwhile, includes additional vocals from the Alabama musician. Talking about the LP version, Vance said:

"This is the waking up to a harsh reality that my addictions were putting at risk everything I had worked hard for. A home, a family and a career. It's about being honest. There was a time in my life that I felt like an oak, but there was no oak there when I looked, just a fragile sapling, but a sign of life nonetheless."

Commenting on the remake, he added: "I've never been eager to duet, but when this opportunity came up it made complete sense to me to have Anderson on Sapling having pulled me through a hard spot himself."

East revealed: "Foy and his music have always been a massive inspiration to me and on my music, I'm beyond honored to be asked to be a part of this beautiful song. He has a way of draining every last drop of emotion out of every note and I’m humbled he’d ask to add my voice to such a powerful and moving song. If the world was full of more Foys, we’d be doing alright."

It arrives ahead of the UK and Ireland leg of Vance's Signs of Life Tour, which kicks off in March.
