Foxing have released a new song called Nearer My God, the title track from their forthcoming album. The track has been released in five different versions, performed in different languages: English, Spanish, French, German and Japanese.
“The language idea started as a “wouldn’t it be cool” thing that just kept going,” the band comment. “The whole point was to put in a fraction of the effort that most international artists put it. The goal was to show respect and appreciation. Each step was difficult because we wanted to get it as right as possible and my only knowledge outside of English is some high school French. Each of the four foreign languages had its own set of difficulties but, after working with 70ish translators and friends for a few months, we’ve got one song in five tongues.”
Nearer My God is due for release on the 10th August, available to pre-order HERE.
Foxing will head out on a co-headline tour with Pianos Become The Teeth next month, with support from Kamikaze Girls.
